Ready to join us on our international mission for Fair Pay?
Exactly three years ago, the FPI was founded in Berlin - with one goal: fair pay for everyone.
And we really took off! Since summer 2017, we have organized multiple Fair Pay Management Circles and a large Best Practice Summit, held a number of presentations and seminars, held discussions with hundreds of experts from business, academia and politics, and travelled to New York, Reykjavík and Davos to search for the fastest ways to achieve fair pay.
A lot has also happened in other respects: since 2017, the German Pay Transparency Act has guaranteed employees a right to transparency. In the United Kingdom, reporting obligations make income differences visible. In France, companies are monitored by means of an equality index. And in Iceland the most effective equal pay law in the world is shrinking the pay gap. A variety of software solutions help with its implementation and the Icelandic Equal Pay Standard can be adapted to every country, every industry, every company.
Fair pay is the key to equal opportunities
It is just the right time to link together these effective measures at international level: it has become clear that there is unfair pay in many sectors and industries, not just in Germany, but all over the world.
Fair pay is more than the key to equality between men and women. Fair pay is the key to equal opportunities for everyone - no matter where people come from, who they love or what they believe in, their family status or age.
1. We become (even more) international
After three years, we are ready to speed up this process significantly so we're leaving the German mothership and looking to new horizons.
2. We team up with the best partner in the world
In the future, we will be partnered with PayAnalytics. PayAnalytics provides the best tools to help companies monitor their pay gaps and close them permanently. We are thrilled to have the Icelandic software developer on our side from now on!
Now we can provide companies with even better assistance in analyzing their figures – whether they have 14 or 144,000 employees. We can advise them on which measures are most suitable for closing pay gaps and keeping them closed. Whether just starting out or scaling up, we’ll support every company on their way to fair pay.
3. We are looking for companies for the Universal Fair Pay Check
At the same time, we are working on an international procedure to be able to measure our efforts and achievements regardless of company size or location. So far, the certification chaos has made the process particularly cumbersome for those companies despite the very best of intentions, namely to ensure fair pay for all employees at all locations worldwide, regardless of the local legal situation and the associated audit procedures. We will close this gap.
But our mission is complex so alongside bold companies we need a great support team. You can now become a Fair Pay Friend by sponsoring a zebra, you can finance our advocacy lab or buy a rocket ticket. If we had 1 wish today, on our 3rd birthday, it would be this: to have your active support. That would be the best birthday gift of all. Let’s use this worldwide imposed interruption to set our course for the future in a way that’s fair for all.
Happy birthday to us!
