The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that UBS has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay, for all its employees in Hong Kong, Singapore, United Kingdom and the United States of America. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries and variable compensation for all its employees working in the above-mentioned countries, UBS underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applies equal pay for women and men.
« After Switzerland in 2020, UBS is the first bank to obtain the EQUAL-SALARY certification on an international level. In a sector that is regularly under scrutiny for its salary practices, UBS now stands out, setting a new standard for gender equality at the heart of the financial sector. » comments Véronique Goy Veenhuys, Founder of EQUAL-SALARY.
“We want to be a world-class employer where employees can unlock their full potential. And diversity, equal opportunity and fair pay practices are key ingredients to this. Our EQUAL-SALARY certifications in Hong Kong, Singapore, Switzerland, the UK and the USA represent more than two-thirds of our employees and demonstrate a real commitment to fair pay across the firm,” says Ralph Hamers, UBS Group CEO.
