Vevey, 20 September 2022 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that HES-SO Rectorate has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, a symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, HES-SO underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay amongst women and men in the Rectorate’s departments.

The EQUAL-SALARY certification is valid for 3 years, during which, the company undergoes two monitoring audits. After 3 years, if the organization wants to keep its label, it needs to renew the certification process with a new salary analysis and a full on-site audit.

« Education is one of the great equalizers when looking at equality of opportunities. With the EQUAL-SALARY certification, the HES-SO (University of Applied Sciences) Rectorate is exceeding its social responsibility by proving its commitment to equal pay between women and men. This certification sends a clear message of justice, diversitý and inclusion to students and Swiss Universities alike. We are proud of this great achievement! », commented Lisa Rubli, co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.

« As the Rectorate of a university, it is our responsibility to be exemplary regarding equality between women and men. Today, we know that we are guaranteeing a fair salary for those who work at our institution. With the EQUAL-SALARY certification, we are sending a strong signal, not only to our staff but also to the students of the HES-SO. Inequality and discrimination have no place in our institution », added Luciana Vaccaro, Rector of HES-SO.
