Gender Equality is a business imperative. There’s plenty of research and thought leadership showing that diverse teams are more successful. But despite the evidence, organizations continue to struggle when it comes to achieving true equality: Women still face unequal pay, the absence of support systems and limited opportunities to advance into senior leadership positions.
In addition to the proven business case for diversity, there is also increasing legal pressure on companies to get equality right. Switzerland is one of the latest countries to introduce legislation aimed to increase transparency and accountability when it comes to pay equity.
On this page, we want to give you helpful insights into what companies should consider when working on gender equality in their organization, both from a Swiss and global perspective. We also want to share our latest When Women Thrive research with you, and provide an overview of how Mercer can help you fulfil regulatory requirements and get ahead on your journey to gender equality.
