Compensation and benefits

Our HR and Reward Management strategies in Thailand seek to attract, motivate, develop and retain a skilled and engaged workforce capable of conducting their complex tasks with the dedication required within the crafting of quality jewellery.

We reward quality and accuracy rather than pieces produced. We offer our Thai employees attractive employment terms with wages that are competitive by industry norms. All Thai staff is hired on open ended contracts that include a Provident Fund with matching contributions from the company and medical benefits that meet or exceed legal requirements. A recent Social Impact Study showed that the average salary for a PANDORA crafting employee is above the industry average, and can sustain an average-sized household in Thailand.

Not least, we provide a range of welfare benefits that target additional needs of our employees. Obvious examples of our welfare benefits are special breaks and maternity classes for pregnant employees, paternity leave, cheap healthy meals, free bus transportation for more than 7,000 colleagues (by end 2017), and traffic safety initiatives such as facilitating the provision of affordable, high quality traffic helmets. Since 2012 we have operated an Edutainment Centre, where our people has access to state-of-the-art IT equipment in comfortable and attractive surroundings. During 2017, the libraries in Bangkok and Lamphun had more than 16,500 visitors and more than 5,200 books were available throughout the year; the most popular genres in 2017 were self-development and production efficiency.
