To achieve this, we ensure employees are fairly remunerated, and that wages are regularly reviewed in a fair process.
When developing and reviewing remuneration and wage policies and practices, we recognise the need to ensure that:
- Our total remuneration practices are aligned with the market conditions in the industries and regions in which we operate.
- Our practices comply with any relevant law and the company's standards of business conduct.
- Distinguishable differences in remuneration are aligned to the relative performance of the business, assets and individuals.
- Our employees see the link between the results they produce and the level of reward they achieve.
Career and employee development
We improve our skills and competencies by regular performance reviews, recognizing potential, undertaking education, training and coaching as appropriate, and offering professional development opportunities within the company. Employees need to understand the business context of their particular role - how they create value for the operation. They need also derive job satisfaction from working for Axiom. Hence operations are encouraged to provide assistance for training which helps the business and also is relevant to an employee's present job and future career.
