5. How high is the wage gap between female and male employees in the Basler Group?

The wage gap in 2021 was -0.65% of female versus male employees, based on gross wages.
Methodology: The value currently refers to the wage gap of employees in Germany; with increasing integration of the foreign companies, these will also be included in the future. The remunerations are adjusted according to the share of working hours. Basler AG works with salary bands. For these, the tasks, requirements, and responsibilities of a group of employees with the same function are defined without considering a specific person or personal attributes. In this way, a gender-independent grouping in the salary bands is achieved. For our figure, the pay gap was determined separately for every salary band, from which the weighted average is calculated. Minor differences between genders can be based on the fact that an employee has been employed by the company for less than 2 years and has therefore not yet reached the final pay level, as well as on individual performance-related bonuses.
