Women and men receive equal pay for equivalent work at a.s.r.

a.s.r. has no pay gap between men and women; they receive equal pay for equivalent work. This is evident from the annual Gender Pay Gap analysis.

Gender equality is an important subject within the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion policy at a.s.r. In order to monitor whether the policy also works out well in practice, a.s.r. conducts an annual Gender Pay Gap analysis, among other things. This shows that men and women at a.s.r. are paid equally for equivalent work. This means that the Gender Pay Gap at a.s.r. is 0%. The (adjusted) pay gap at Dutch companies is 5%, to the disadvantage of women. This is evident from the National Salary Survey 2021 by Intermediair and Nyenrode Business University.

a.s.r.’s ambition goes beyond equal pay for men and women. For example, a.s.r. also aims for a more proportionate distribution of men and women in management and specialist positions. This improvement in diversity must come from the internal career advancement of women at a.s.r., as well as the influx of more women who come to work for a.s.r.

Examples to further promote gender diversity are:

  • A pilot with anonymous applications and a diverse composition of the interviewers in the job application interviews: these always include both a male and a female interviewer.
  • The compulsory unconscious implicit bias course on for all managers, in which they learn how to recognise unconscious bias and what techniques are available to eliminate it.
  • a.s.r. works together with various organisations, such as Talent to the Top, Women In Financial Services (WIFS), InTouch Female Leadership and the Agora Network, to further improve the position of women in the labour market.
Progress

Progress has been made on several fronts: last year, as many men as women started in a new position at a.s.r. The proportion of women who have shown the potential to advance to management positions is also growing. 

Jolanda Sappelli, Human Resources Director at a.s.r: ‘The survey shows that there is no wage gap between women and men at a.s.r. But we are not yet where we want to be in terms of gender diversity in all layers of the organisation. However, the progress that a.s.r. has made in this respect in recent years shows that the measures we have in place are effective and that we are on the right track. We will continuously monitor these developments and take additional measures if necessary.’
