The French law No. 2018-771 of September 5, 2018, on the freedom to choose one's professional future, introduced new measures to end the gender wage gap.
French companies with more than fifty employees must produce and communicate their "gender equality index" every year.
This index includes five indicators calculated on a total of 100 points. It measures different data related to professional equality:
- Pay gaps
- Gaps in the proportion of women and men who have received a raise
- Differences in the proportion of women and men promoted
- Systematic pay increase of women on maternity leave
- Number of women in the company's top ten earners
With an overall score of 83/100 for the second consecutive year, ESSEC confirms its strong commitment to professional equality.
