Vevey / Roma, November 28 2022 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Poste Italiane, Italy largest employer, has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, a symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay, for all employees in Italy. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, Poste Italiane underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay for women and men.

With more than 120’000 employees, Poste Italiane becomes the largest organization to ever be granted the EQUAL-SALARY certification.

We are very proud of this great achievement, and we are confident that it will inspire other companies to join the equal pay movement”, commented Noémie Storbeck co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
