1. It is good to say you pay women and men equally. It is more effective to prove it through an independent third party. As an EQUAL-SALARY employer, you show you took action for equal pay. It is about respect and trust of your employees.
  2. You will improve the performance of your company. Increasing the number of women in your company, especially in managerial positions will help you for the market comprehension. Considering buying power and influence on decision, women are responsible for 80% of the global total of purchases.
  3. You will be proactively managing risks. The EQUAL-SALARY certification gives you a documented report showing you the significant individual discrepancies and telling you where you should take actions.
  4. You will go beyond legal obligations and have useful tools to address any incurred risk related to local regulations. You are showing principles of good governance and in the process … it feels good!
  5. Being EQUAL-SALARY certified offers you a competitive advantage for talent acquisition. Talented people will choose you as their employer, rather than your “not-certified” competitor, simple.
  6. Once recruited, you will have arguments to retain those talents.
  7. You will be a pioneer in Diversity & Inclusion. You act instead of talking. You will be a leader.
  8. Money talks. If you want to tackle diversity, start with the gender pay gap. Equal Pay for work of equal value is foundational. Once you have reached Equal Pay, you can start building on it and eventually reach gender equality and diversity. The EQUAL-SALARY Certification not only proves that your company pays its employees fairly, it also drives you to have well implemented HR processes that will lead to continuous improvement.
  9. Your corporate image and your reputation will be enlightened. You can communicate about the positive measures that you took. You can enter a community of companies that take Sustainable Development seriously. You can be a member of the UN Global Compact and
    showcase your action for SDG5 and SDG8.
  10. You are addressing the Women Empowerment Principles, a joint initiative by the UN Global Compact and UN Women.
