The Danone Nutricia Experience

Nutricia is one of the growing number of organisations experiencing the benefits of implementing R.Review, an online solution to manage the salary and incentive review process. In implementing R.Review Nutricia have reduced the administrative burden of managing their review process and received fantastic feedback from their managers about the new approach.

Nutricia, part of the France based Danone Company, has a mission to bring health through food to as many people as possible. Nutricia is recognised as the leader in specialised nutrition and operates in a unique position in the global market as the only company whose entire business is based on nutritional products and support for all age groups.

Following their first year of using R.Review, Remesys’ award winning SaaS salary review solution, Mandy Allen, Nutricia’s Human Resources Manager for Australia and New Zealand explained their reasons for implementing R.Review and their experiences throughout the process.

With National Statistics showing very little movement in the gender pay gap we'll discuss the 'devil' that sits behind the statistics and ask what can be done and who is responsible for doing it?
