ELVIA PCB GROUP GENDER EQUALITY INDEX 2022

By Uncategorized No Comments

PUBLICATION OF ELVIA PCB GROUP SCORE FOR 2021

Established in 2018 in accordance with the law for the freedom to choose one’s professional future, the gender equality index is a score that enables companies to assess the level of equality between men and women by 100 points, based on the following criteria:

  • Gender pay gap
  • Individual pay rise gap
  • The number of employees who received a pay rise upon their return from maternity leave
  • Parity among the top 10 earners

 

The minimal score expected is 75/100¹ and the official national averages improve from one year to the next :

 

86/100 in 2021 ;

85/100 in 2020 ;

84/100 in 2019.

Indicated hereinbelow all of ELVIA PCB GROUP subsidiaries’ scores:

elvia Normandy – Coutances75
elvia Brittany – A&P Lithos92
elvia Loire Valley – CIRETECNon-calculable
elvia Fontainbleau – BREENon-calculable

These declining indicators, compared to the good scores of last year, can be explained by the occurrence of marginal events such as retirements. They don’t reflect the efforts made to ensure continuity in our results.

But our motivation has not been affected in any way. We intend to continue the actions we have begun and the implementation of our good practices, not only to regain the level of scores of previous years, but above all to respect the human values that underpin our group.

To succeed, the France Relance program, through its financial solutions, offers a real asset. Our company took that opportunity and play its part as a leader in PCB’s manufacturing.

Because of the uncertainty brought by the crisis, our investment projects were reconsidered. But thanks to the Government Recovery Plan « Résilience » dedicated to strategic sectors such as electronics, we were able to bounce back.
