How are companies reacting to Equal, Fair and Gender Based Pay Issues?

In March we had two very successful events on this subject in Zurich and Geneva

The issue of “fair pay” has become a key focus for many companies and also a frequent topic of public discussion. Two basic questions always arise in this regard: firstly, what must companies do? This is will be influenced by updated legal frameworks, such as the Equal Treatment Act (Gleichstellungsgesetz) or by factors such as pressure from investors. Secondly, how should companies react as part of their broader approaches to managing the expectations of their staff and their company’s public image?

Many companies have already recognised that “fair pay” goes a lot further than the same pay for the same work, as it encompasses equal opportunities from the time of recruitment all the way through career development.

We are happy to share with you the results of the pulse survey in Switzerland referring to the following topics in detail:

  • What experiences have you had in this area since the Equal Treatment Act was put into effect?
  • What internal fair pay analyses are conducted by companies?
  • In which areas are measures being taken?
