Fair Deal
Fair Deal
The company seeks to offer an attractive remuneration package comprising salary, bonuses and other benefits. To enable the company to achieve its objectives, they strive to recruit and retain the best people. Whilst salary is not the only factor that influences this, it comprises the largest element of their remuneration package. Salaries reflect an employee’s current potential within the company and in the wider market, this means that an individual’s salary will be compared with others in the company as well as the external market. Employees also benefit frequently from discretionary profit related pay, their policy is that the work that an individual has been asked to do should not influence their bonus, rather it should be their performance in the role they have been asked to perform, wherever or whatever that is within the company.
