GENDER EQUALITY INDEX, Candriam – Succursale française

In order to eliminate occupational inequality between women and men in companies, the Ministry of Labour has introduced the gender equality index, which is mandatory for all French companies with more than 50 employees.

The index is calculated out of 100 points on the basis of four indicators

  • The gender pay gap,
  • The difference in the distribution of individual raises,
  • The number of employees given a raise on their return from maternity leave,
  • Parity among the ten highest earners.

If the index comes in below 75 points, the company must implement corrective measures to reach at least 75 points within three years.

Candriam France’s gender equality index for 2021 is 81 points out of 100. 

This score encourages us to continue our commitment to promoting equality among employees, whatever their role at Candriam.

Occupational equality between women and men in the selection process prior to them being hired, as well as at all stages in their career, is a major issue to which we pay the utmost attention.

Greater occupational diversity is a source of collective enrichment, economic efficiency and social balance.
