Gender equality

For several years, ESI Group has been implementing a CSR approach into all its actions and strategies. In fact, the Group has formalized a strategy organized around 4 pillars: Employees, Customers, Civil Society and the Planet.

To strengthen this initiative, ESI joined the UN Global Compact in 2018. Thus, the Group has strengthened and reorganized its CSR strategy by integrating 10 of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals defined by the United Nations. One of these Goals is gender equality.

"Gender equality" is fully integrated into the Group's strategy.

In France, "Equal pay for equal work" has been a principle of labor law for several decades. Nevertheless, gaps persist. In this respect, the Avenir law aims to eliminate the pay gap between men and women.

In this perspective, each year, companies with 50 employees or more must calculate the gender equality index and publish the obtained score.

Please note that, given the global health context, ESI did not carry out a global review of its salaries during the year 2020, which had an impact on the index result (as presented below) and in particular the indicator concerning employees returning from maternity leave. In this particular context, ESI is continuing its policy of monitoring professional equality and plans to establish a specific action plan in that sense.

下記指標は、異なる指標に基づいて算出されています。

  • 賃金格差;
  • 個人の昇給率の格差;
  • the difference in promotion rates between women and men;
  • the rate of female employees who received a salary increase in the year following their return from maternity leave;
  • the number of employees of the under-represented gender among the 10 highest paid employees.

The goal is for each company to reach a minimum score of 75/100. If a company does not exceed this threshold, it has three years to comply, failing which it may be sanctioned up to 1% of its payroll.

In accordance with this regulation, the ESI Group UES (ESI Group, ESI France & Civitec) in France has calculated its Gender Equality Index.

Below are the results:

  • The gender pay gap: 37/40;
  • The gap in individual rates of pay increase: 20/20;
  • The gap in promotion rates between women and men: 15/15;
  • The rate of employees having benefited from a salary increase in the year following their return from maternity leave: 0/15;
  • The number of employees of the under-represented sex among the 10 highest paid employees: 5/10.

TOTAL: 77/100.

ESI Group has calculated this result considering the following principles:

  • The reference period used is the calendar year: from January 1 to December 31, 2020;
  • The scope of the analysis is 304 employees;
  • The calculations of the various indicators, in particular salary raises and return from maternity leave, are made at the level of socio-professional categories.
