Vevey / Sion, April 8, 2020 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that HES-SO Valais-Wallis has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, HES-SO Valais-Wallis underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay for women and men. HES-SO Valais-Wallis is the first institution in the field of education to obtain the EQUAL-SALARY certification.

“Certifying a HES (University of Applied Sciences) is a strong signal for the equal pay movement in Switzerland. Indeed, beyond the direct benefit for HES-SO’s employees, students are also positively impacted as they are evolving in an environment which advocates for -and implements- equal pay before they even start their worklife. This is a beautiful example for a new generation of leaders.” said Véronique Goy Veenhuys, Founder and CEO of EQUAL-SALARY.

HES-SO Valais-Wallis, university of applied sciences and Arts, places his employees at the very heart of its missions. This is why the top management endeavours since several years to create a fair and non-discriminatory wage policy. Being EQUAL-SALARY certified is hence in absolute correspondence with our corporate culture and our values: transparency, ethics and sustainability.added François Seppey, General Director of HES-SO Valais-Wallis.
