The EQUAL-SALARY Foundation is pleased to announce that Wind Tre SpA has obtained the EQUAL-SALARY certification, symbol of excellence in terms of equal pay. After successfully passing the statistical analysis of its salaries, Wind Tre SpA underwent an internal audit entrusted to PwC proving that it applied equal pay for women and men. Wind Tre Spa is the first organization in the ICT (Information and Communication Technology) field to obtain the EQUAL-SALARY certification.
« Around the world women are less likely to be employed in the technology sector and when they are, they usually get paid less. According to ILOSTAT data in 2019, women earn 21% less than men in the ICT sector worldwide. The EQUAL-SALARY certification of Wind Tre is excellent news for a growing sector where digital skills are in demand. We hope that the certification of Wind Tre will encourage other telecom companies to take a stand » commented Noémie Storbeck, co-CEO of the EQUAL-SALARY Foundation.
« We are proud to be the first telecommunication company in the world to reach this extraordinary milestone », said Jeffrey Hedberg, CEO of WINDTRE. He adds: « Gender equality in remuneration policies and career development is an essential element to build a corporate culture oriented to inclusion, one of the four core values of WINDTRE ».
