Equal pay is a human right, it is a strategic issue for society and is now on the agenda of most business leaders. Achieving EQUAL-SALARY certification enables organisations to demonstrate that they pay their employees, both women and men, equally and gives them considerable added value.
The EQUAL-SALARY certification is issued by the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation, an independent, non-profit organisation that promotes equal pay - and thus equal opportunities - between women and men in companies worldwide. This certification is based on a sound scientific approach and was developed in collaboration with the University of Geneva and financially supported by the Swiss Confederation.
Any organisation with at least 50 employees, including at least 10 women, is eligible for this certification.
Equal salary: what benefits for employers?
By becoming an EQUAL-SALARY certified company, you demonstrate your commitment to equal pay for women and men.
Certification gives you a key advantage in attracting and retaining talent. It also improves your image with customers, investors and suppliers.
By positioning your organisation as a pioneer in diversity and inclusion, you are committed to a more equitable and sustainable world.
Certification goes far beyond salary analysis. It requires a clear and sustained commitment from management and the existence of efficient HR processes that allow for continuous improvement of gender equality in the company.
