Salary policy
Remuneration of personnel takes into account the level
of responsibility as well as employee performance in each
position.
Salaries of BME employees are established using the sala-
ry table provided in the extra-statutory Collective Labour
Agreement, which applies to 86.85% of personnel. The oth-
er Collective Agreements applicable to Group employees
have drawn up their own salary tables.
At BME there are no differences in salary betweenmale and
female employees, the only differences are the result of the
variation in professional categories, based on different lev-
els of responsibility.
Both the collective labour agreement and the salary table
contained therein preclude any gender, race or other bias in
determining salaries.
Furthermore, the base salaries mentioned above are
complemented with a series of remuneration items, all of
which are regulated by the Collective Agreement.
Meanwhile, each employee’s compensation is set in ac-
cordance with the level of responsibility of the position,
each worker’s job performance and whether the employee
meets targets.
