Vevey, April 27, 2022 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Lyreco Switzerland AG has obtained, for the third time in a row, the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay for all its staff in Switzerland. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, Lyreco underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay for women and men. The EQUAL-SALARY certification is valid for 3 years, during which, the company undergoes two monitoring audits. After 3 years, the organisation needs to renew the certification process with a new salary analysis and a full on-site audit.
« Good things come in threes. This expression is more than ever aptly named. This third certification in a row for Lyreco asserts their strong commitment to a gender-fair wage policy. For the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation, this represents not only another victory towards universal equality, which we are striving for with strength and determination, but also a mark of mutual trust and recognition of the quality of our work », commented Lisa Rubli, co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
« We can rightly say that EQUAL-SALARY is not just a written declaration. Today, this theme is deeply rooted in our culture », added Thomas Illi Managing Director of Lyreco.
