The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that, having met all requirements of the EQUAL-SALARY procedure, JTI Headquarters in Geneva are now EQUAL-SALARY certified. JTI Headquarters in Geneva have demonstrated compliance with our Standards and successfully completed the on-site audit, showing principles of fairness for all employees at the workplace and offering equal opportunity and equal pay to women and men.
« With the certification of JTI Headquarters, EQUAL-SALARY Foundation takes another step towards the globalization of its label. It is very important that big industries take the lead in tackling the gender pay gap. With every single action, it is the whole movement of equal pay that grows and gets increased attention » commented Véronique Goy Veenhuys, Founder and CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation during the certification ceremony this afternoon.

« We are delighted that our commitment to pay all our employees fairly is now recognized and endorsed by the independent EQUAL-SALARY Foundation,” said Guergana Andreeva, Global HQ HR Vice President. “Gender pay equity is essential to us. It establishes a culture of trust within our organization and is a key asset in the recruitment of future talent. »
