Vevey, 5 May 2022 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that SGS Société Générale de Surveillance SA has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay for all of its staff members in Switzerland. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, SGS underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay for women and men.

« SGS is our historical partner for audits, as such its certification means a lot to the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation. While leading by example in applying principles of equality and demonstrating its commitment to consider employees fairly and with respect, SGS becomes an essential building block of the future of diversity and inclusion in the labour market » commented Noémie Storbeck, co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.

« SGS is committed to all employees having equal opportunity and being treated with dignity, consideration and respect in all work-related settings. As a leader in Testing, Inspection and Certification, we strongly believe in third party certification to provide trust to all stakeholders. The Equal Salary Certificate, which demonstrates that SGS Switzerland is providing fair compensation to all employees, regardless of gender, is another milestone for equality at SGS and provides a benchmark for our other locations. Treating gender equally is a key pillar for our success and our ability to attract the best talent. » added Frankie Ng CEO of SGS.
