Vevey / Lausanne, October 1 2021 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that PricewaterhouseCoopers B.V. in the Netherlands has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, PwC Netherlands underwent an internal audit entrusted to SGS proving that it applied equal pay for women and men.
« The certification of PwC Netherlands proves its commitment to equal pay for men and women and reinforces its objective to attract the best talents. Having PwC Netherlands among our certified companies is not only a great source of pride, but also shows a pioneering example of equal pay in Northern Europe and extends the reach of EQUAL-SALARY.» commented Lisa Rubli, Co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
« At PwC we strive to achieve an inclusive culture in which we embrace diversity. Inclusive means that everyone feels involved and valued – not in spite of, but thanks to their differences.
A key indicator in an inclusive culture is the extent of equal pay for equal work. Equality is important to us and in line with SDG 5 and 10 we wanted to gain insight into pay equality across the entire organisation. Hence, we committed ourselves to the external and independent certification process of the Swiss EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
We are proud that we have successfully passed the certification process and are happy to communicate this to our colleagues, clients, and peers.» added Olivier van Urk, Director Human Capital of PwC in the Netherlands.
