EMPLOYER VALUE PROPOSITION COCONAT

An Employer Value Proposition (EVP) is COCONAT’S core benefits summed up in a nutshell that make up its wider Employer Branding (EVP + Code of Conduct + Culture + Marketing).

The EVP is a promise between an employer and a potential applicant; what can COCONAT and its culture offer potential recruits in exchange for their talent, skills, and experience? This EVP intends to explain and build the case to attract top talent—sharpening COCONAT’s identity and culture, strengthening the employer branding, and facilitating better recruitment, overall. The development of this document was initiated through a organisational development process framed by the Unternehmenswert Mensch programm, this document was decided on in spring 2022 by Iris, Julianne and Janosch and it´s an aim we will work on in the next years.

1. Compensation

1.1 Salary

Coconat wants to offers a Competitive Salary for our Hospitality Staff. We take the average wage for all of Germany, based on statistics from the Entgeltatlas of Bundesagentur für Arbeit (using Median, 25-54 years in whole Germany), and add 10%. The Entgeltatlas averages will be checked annually and wages adjusted up accordingly.

All team members who continue with Coconat for 24 calendar months will be given a 10% wage increase, both freelance and contract workers. Further bonuses to reward loyalty will be put in place.

So far we cannot afford this, but we are working hard on making it happen.

1.2 Share of Company Success

At the end of every calendar year, all Coconat Team members who have worked one calendar year or more, will be a part of our bonus programme. A bonus to your salary will be based on Coconat’s profit for the previous year (due to one year delay in the approval of the annual financial statement by the tax department, reduced by surpluses and a shareholder-salary), and equally shared with all eligible team members, using completed working hours as the calculation tool. 

Example:

Coconat has 3 employees, and experienced 1,000€ in profit

Martin has worked 5 hours this year :: bonus is 5×50€ =  €250

Andrea has worked 10 hours this year :: bonus is 10×50€ = €500

Trina has worked 5 hours this year :: bonus is 5×50€ = €250

1000€/20hours =50

Bonuses are not affected by hourly rates.

1.3 work / leisure time

At Coconat there are not unpaid over-hours!!

We support flexible work modells like unpaid extra-holidays, remote work, part-time work and gap years.

Everybody (with a contract) gets 29 days off (legally 24 are obligatory) to balance out public holidays in which Coconat is open in a more fair and flexible way.

Christmas and New Years we are aiming for a closing time of at least two weeks.

We implement the legal rule to have at least two days in a row off each week. 

We are aiming to be able to pay extra for weekend-work.
