EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES The company shall disclose how it is implementing national and international processes and what objectives it has for promoting equal opportunities and diversity, work safety and health protection, worker participation, the integration of immigrants and people with disabilities, fair pay and reconciling family and work, and how it implements these measures. 16. QUALIFICATIONS The company shall disclose what objectives it has set itself and what measures it has taken to promote em- ployability, i.e. the ability of all staff to participate in the world of work and jobs and to adapt to the demo- graphic development, and also where it perceives risks. Aims and measures for employability: The aim is to keep our staff healthy, physically and mentally. We want to preserve their employability and deploy them in accordance with their abilities. To this end, we systematically promote health (for further details, see Criterion 14). The possibility of a company health management with a health insurance fund is being examined for the Bocholt location for 2019. Equal opportunities, non-discrimination and diversity are part of our company philosophy. We fulfil the targets of the German General Equal Treatment Act (AGG). National diversity: As of 31/12/2017, we have been employing 184 foreign workers from 27 nations. That is a high proportion; about 32 % of the staff. Measures to achieve fair pay: The company collective wage agreement was worked out together with the German trade union for foodstuffs, drinks and tobacco (NGG). The conditions for the com- pany collective wage are better than the collective wage for the sector. Wage tables ensure that men and women are paid the same. The remuneration is fair and is always above the minimum wage. Staff receive Christmas and holiday pay. Overtime is paid in production, with supple- mentary payments. Options for deferred compensation are available. Gender equality measures: Men and women are treated equally. It is typical of the sector that more men than women apply for jobs in production. We therefore promote the employment of women in production. Women work there in leading positions too, as machine operators and plant operators. Technical aids, such as lifting aids, ensure a relief of physical strain. We qualify our staff through a variety of educational and training opportunities: · Industrial clerk · Industrial mechanic · Industrial electronics technician · Specialist in food technology · Traineeships abroad · Further training as an industry master · Bachelor’s degree: Job-concurrent study programme To give them a good start, we offer new staff a six-week induction training, concluding with an exam.
