Workforce diversity is a cornerstone of our success and an important element of our business strategy, facilitating international expansion and strengthening our innovation capability and competitiveness. We regard workforce diversity as an opportunity to quickly respond to change and to better cater to customer needs. We know that it enhances our reputation among business partners, customers and job applicants.
We understand that employee satisfaction is one of the KRUK Group’s key growth drivers. We value the experience of our employees and provide them with opportunities for further career development. This is why we seek to reduce employee turnover so that the knowledge and know-how are retained within the organisation to fuel its continued growth.
In 2022, the KRUK Group’s employee turnover ratio was 13.4%, down 1.6pp year on year.
Workforce diversity is our forte. It is a source of our international success, which helps us to better understand and respond to client needs. Competence is the key criterion. Everyone in our organisation can get promoted, regardless of their gender, nationality and other extraneous factors. What matters to us is involvement and willingness to grow. Women account for 60% of all KRUK Group employees. Importantly, 62% of women hold senior managerial positions, representing 42% of all Company directors (members of the Management and Supervisory Boards).
For the KRUK Group, non-discrimination also means equal pay. In our ESG Strategy, we have declared that by 2025 we will achieve full pay equality between men and women performing similar work at Group companies. As at the end of 2022, the Equal Pay Gap (EPG) for the entire Group was 1.2%.
KRUK S.A. has been a signatory to the Diversity Charter since 2013. The Charter is an international initiative of the European Commission, intended to promote social cohesion and equality. The fundamental principle of the Charter is non-discrimination in the workplace and recognising and promoting diversity in all areas of activity. The provisions of the Charter apply across the KRUK Group and are taken into account in various processes, including recruitment.
