Employee satisfaction and codetermination
Employee survey confirms employee retention
A regular employee survey forms a fixed part of the corporate culture. It reflects a company where employees are happy with their working conditions, the company as an employer, and the management culture. The survey also acts as an indicator of employee retention. The next survey is scheduled to take place in fall 2017. This is one year later than planned in order to avoid high number of simultaneous major surveys.
FMG encourages codetermination
Employees have numerous opportunities to get involved in committees that are required by law or other working groups, i.e. the Supervisory Board, Youth and Trainees Council, Council for Employees with Disabilities, Company health management working group, and company sports club. The works council is currently made up of 31 members. Over recent years, employee representatives have worked with the employer to draw up important company agreements related to health management, occupational safety, temporary workers, remote working, and models for working hours.
Personnel expenses and payments above the general pay scale
Flughafen München GmbH is a member of the regional public employers’ association and, as such, is bound by the TVöD collective pay scale agreement for public sector employees. At the end of April 2016, the municipal employer associations worked with the labor unions ver.di and dbb to pass a new collective pay agreement with a 24-month term. The outcome was that remuneration for staff at FMG and AeroGround increased by 2.4 percent with retroactive effect from March 1, 2016, followed by a further 2.35 percent increase as of February 1, 2017. Furthermore, agreements regarding annual bonuses, a new schedule of remuneration, the supplementary pension fund, and semi-retirement were also passed by the works council. Apprentices saw their wages rise by a flat rate of 35 euros on March 1, 2016, followed by an additional 30 euro increase on February 1, 2017. The annual vacation allowance also rose from 28 to 29 days. The collective payment agreement resulted in approximately an additional 4.4 million euros in expenses for the company. FMG employees participate in a company retirement scheme, which is governed under the pay scale agreement and covered by the Bavarian supplementary pension fund for municipal employers.
