Our People’s Roles

Equality and Diversity

ADAMA evolved from a diverse group of entities and individuals. Our people flourish when we embrace differences and empower them to be authentic.
By valuing inclusivity, showing respect to all and embodying equality, we strive to better the lives of others.

We outline and focus our D&I activities around four main pillars: Eliminating biases, Promoting equality, Impacting community and empowering people.

In 2020 we established a global D&I Committee under the leadership of one of our management team members. The committee developed and enhanced our ambition and will be responsible for the execution of various initiatives and KPIs as we look to improve and amplify the diversity of our teams and the inclusiveness within our culture.


Age Diversity

At ADAMA, the age of our People is not a factor in hiring decisions, remuneration, nor promotion. The company believes that diversity, regarding multiple parameters including age, is important for the quality of work and the overall working environment.

Gender Diversity

ADAMA places great importance on encouraging the employment of women in all roles across the company and recognizes the need to increase the percentage of women in the workforce. Wherever possible, we have established a policy of flexible work hours to enable our People to balance their work hours and family time. We also enable our People to do some of their work from home.

Workforce by Gender 2019-2020

Our ongoing monitoring of the gender pay gap shows that on the employee level in 2019, the base salary for women was higher than the base salary for men. The salary of middle management was equal between genders. At the senior and top management level, respectively — the reason for the gap is the large variance in role type at this level.
