Gender equality index (« Index de l'égalité femmes/hommes ») across the French entities of Pernod Ricard Group

Press Release 15/02/2021

Gender equality index (« Index de l'égalité femmes ' hommes ») 
across the French entities of Pernod Ricard Group

In line with the French law « Pour la liberté de choisir son avenir professionnel » promulgated on September 5th, 2018, and the decree published on January 8th, 2019 aiming to eliminate remuneration gaps between female and male employees, Pernod Ricard SA and its French entities are publishing their equality index.

This index, out of 100 points, is calculated based on 5 criteria:
-    The remuneration gap between female and male employees
-    The salary increase ratio between female and male employees 
-    The promotion ratio between female and male employees 
-    The portion of female employees who received a salary increase while on maternity leave
-    The number of female/male employees among the 10 highest salaries


Pernod Ricard consolidated index: 90*


Results of French entities of Pernod Ricard Group:
'    Pernod Ricard SA: index of 81* 
'    Pernod Ricard EMEA/MENA: index of 72* 
'    Ricard SAS: index of 92 
'    Pernod SAS: index of 91 
'    Martell & Co: index of 92
'    GH MUMM et Cie: index of 99 
'    Champagne Perrier Jouet: Non applicable
'    Vignobles Mumm Perrier Jouet: index of 85 

 

* A technical effect of our compensation policy (no salary increase for employees present for less than 3 months at the time of the merit campaign or for employees promoted in the past 6 months preceding this campaign) negatively impacts the outcome of the calculation. Without this bias, the results of the index for Pernod Ricard SA and Pernod Ricard EMEA/MENA would be 91 and 92 respectively, i.e. a consolidated index for France of 92.
