General principles of remuneration
The MCH Group endeavours to offer its employees attractive general conditions. The remuneration principles, remuneration systems and remuneration levels are based on the standard conditions prevailing on the market and in the sector and are regularly reviewed. The MCH Group also aims to allow as many of its employees as possible to participate in the group’s success through a variable remuneration component.
The remuneration systems for all the companies are configured in such a way that
- they are both proportionate and competitive in relation to those of companies in a comparable field of activity;
- they are commensurate with the quality of the work, the workload and the responsibility borne by the post in question and the contribution made by the individual;
- they are readily comprehensible and transparent for employees at all levels;
- the profit-related (variable) remuneration is in proportion to the group result;
- the ratio between the non-profit-related (fixed) and the profit-related (variable) elements of the remuneration is commensurate with the sphere of influence of the employee concerned;
- an appropriate ratio exists between the lowest and the highest wages.
