At the eve of the Swiss Women Strike of June 14, the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Lyreco Switzerland AG has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification for the second time in a row. 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.
Lyreco Switzerland AG is the first company from the retail sector, more specifically from the retail of office supplies, to obtain the EQUAL-SALARY certification. Stimulated by its first experience, Lyreco Switzerland AG chose to renew its commitment, thus showing a strong will to take an active part in supporting the equal pay movement.
“By renewing the EQUAL-SALARY certification, Lyreco proves its strong commitment to equal pay. Lyreco takes the lead in terms of good governance, thus setting an example for other companies of the retail sector – where equal pay still has a long way to go.” said Véronique Goy Veenhuys, Founder and CEO of EQUAL-SALARY.
Thomas Illi, CEO of Lyreco Switzerland AG, said: “For Lyreco Switzerland AG, equal opportunities has been an evidence for years. This is a matter of culture, and lastly, it is also the personal responsibility of each collaborator “.
