Women’s Quota – Target Figures for LSG Sky Chefs

In order to comply with the “Law on Equal Participation of Women and Men in Leading Positions in the Private and Public Sector,” LSG Group initially established relevant target figures in 2015. In addition to the statutory quota, all companies within the Lufthansa Group have set a common target figure. Every company will contribute to this figure, taking into account the respective framework of the individual company. LSG Group companies will also contribute. Based on the common target figure for the Lufthansa Group, all German LSG Group companies with legal obligation to determine their target figures have defined their own goals for their supervisory and executive boards, as well as for management levels 1 and 2.

By December 31, 2016, LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG achieved a quota of 20 percent (target: 18.2 percent) on management level 1 and a quota of 18 percent on management level 2 (target: 27.3 percent). Not achieving the target quota set for management level 2, was caused by higher fluctuation than expected, including job rotation of female leaders within the LSG Group. At LSG Sky Chefs Frankfurt ZD GmbH, LSG Sky Chefs Frankfurt International GmbH and the LSG Sky Chefs Munich GmbH, the management level 2 target quotas were not achieved for the same reason. The companies are determined to put an even stronger focus on recruiting more female leaders through a specific succession planning strategy.

Within the Lufthansa Group, a five years’ period has been set, with new target figures for the gender quota, until December 31, 2021. For LSG Lufthansa Service Holding AG a quota of 30 percent has been set for the Executive Board, while for management level 1, the quota is 25 percent and for management level 2, it is 30 percent. For the new quotas of all German LSG Group companies with legal obligation to determine target figures please refer to the table below.

Previous experience has shown that the gender quota in leading positions can be truly improved by defined measures regarding the staffing policy as well as programs to foster female talent. LSG Group is encouraging the continuous creation of new initiatives as much as the development of existing ones, like the implementation of a transparent recruitment process which takes diversity criteria into account, or the systematic talent management process, which is fostering young female talents at lower management levels.

The LSG Group is proud of its long heritage and international success.
