Equal Opportunity

Equal opportunity and anti-discrimination are cornerstones of our corporate policy and our human resources management. We value the diversity of our employees and therefore decided to sign the German Charter of Diversity (Charta der Vielfalt) in 2012. We are bound by these principles – also when talking salaries. Our employees receive regular training on the German General Equal Treatment Act (Allgemeines Gleichbehandlungsgesetz).

The Act on Equal Participation of Women and Men in Executive Positions in the Private and the Public Sector (Gesetz für die gleichberechtigte Teilhabe von Frauen und Männern an Führungspositionen in der Privatwirtschaft und im öffentlichen Dienst) came into effect on 1 May 2015. Against this background, on 29 November 2019 the Management Board of DZ HYP set target figures for the first (F1) and second (F2) management levels within the scope of its demographic concept. By 30 June 2024, the share of women shall amount to 12 per cent at F1 management level, and to 23 per cent at F2 management level. As at 31 December 2019, the share was 6 per cent at F1 level and 17 per cent at F2 level.
