Ratios of standard entry level wage by gender compared to local minimum wage
All of our employees receive wages that are higher than the minimum standard as stipulated by local law or statute.
The wages that an employee receives for his work at Symrise when initially employed are determined by our collective bargaining agreements if the employee is governed by the CBA while those workers not governed by the CBA receive wages based on our job grade concept. These wages are significantly above the statutory minimum.
Remuneration at all our locations – especially our starting wage – applies equally regardless of gender. This means that the starting wage for a woman is the same as for a man.
