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 88/100 in 2022 (for 2021 data), ESSEC confirms its strong commitment to professional equality by moving up five points compared to 2021 (for 2020 data).
