Strongest in Iceland

Strongest in Iceland

Creditinfo annually carries out a detailed analysis, highlighting Icelandic companies that have achieved top marks for their strength, stability and resilience in the marketplace. Only about 2% of Icelandic companies pass the conditions each year and receive the coveted award of being one of ‘Iceland’s Strongest Companies’, a certification of strength and stability. We believe that in smaller economies, it is more important to assess a company’s strength through the stability of their operational performance over time, as opposed to reviewing only one fiscal year. This long-term assessment thus prevents the inclusion of companies that cannot withstand market fluctuations.

The Veritas Group awarded the Golden seal of PwC’s Equal Pay Audit.

The golden seal of PwC's Equal Pay Audit is awarded to companies where the wage difference by gender is under 3.5%. Veritas and subsidiaries are considerably under that limit.

The results are gathered from viewing data on salaries of the employees of Veritas and its subsidiaries. The Equal Pay Audit reviews the difference in men’s and women’s basic and total salary.
