    Remuneration practices are regularly reviewed and the group is committed to removing any unfair discrimination in pay scales. In South Africa, differentials are disclosed in terms of employment equity legislation, this covers 76.5% of group employees.

    A detailed review of the average basic monthly salaries for males and females was conducted by employee level (and by region) and did not reveal any structural discrepancies or discrimination. These are conducted with a view to ensuring equality in remuneration practices.

    The ratio between males and females vary by scale and favour depending on job role and tenure.

    Given the vast range of countries, industries and job categories, it is not practical to disclose the ratio of basic salary of men to women by employee category.

    As the group has implemented the Towers Watson (TW) global grading system in all operations, its positions are graded accordingly. Wage and salary levels are benchmarked by country and TW category. This ensures equity and non-discrimination in remuneration practices.
