How can equal pay help your business?

Wednesday, 31.01.2018 | PwC Zürich


About the Event

For every CHF 100k that a man earns in Switzerland, the woman earns CHF 87.5k.. (Source for data on 12.5% gender pay gap: Federal Statistic Office, Switzerland 2014)

66% of employees would not apply for a job if they knew that there was a pay gap (PwC 2016). 

Therefore, equal pay is a key driver for the level of engagement, motivation and intention to stay with an organisation. It also impacts on business performance at a company and societal level.

Come meet our panellists at our breakfast event, held in collaboration with ADVANCE. Our panellists will share their experiences on pay equity, how they are working to eliminate the gender pay gap and the benefits they are seeing.
