Vevey, 7 June 2022 – The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Services Industriels de Genève – SIG has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification for the third time, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay for all of its employees in Switzerland. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, SIG 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 organization needs to renew the certification process with a new salary analysis and a full on-site audit.
« Three times the charm! With a third consecutive EQUAL-SALARY certification, SIG reaffirms its strong commitment to gender pay equity in the public sector and beyond. This continuous investment improves the motivation and well-being of staff, the performance of the organisation, but also equality in the family sphere and tasks allocation. Our cause continues to advance, and we are deeply grateful to pioneering companies such as SIG », commented Noémie Storbeck, co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
« For the third time, SIG has confirmed its commitment to the fair treatment of its employees by receiving the EQUAL-SALARY label. This initiative is part of the diversity and inclusion program supported by our senior management, aimed at the well-being of everyone in the workplace. Respect and fairness within our teams are a matter of course if we want these values to be conveyed to all our stakeholders », added Christian Brunier, General Manager of SIG.
