Gender Equality at Work

How to promote genuine equal opportunities for women and men?

Gender equality in the workplace goes far beyond equal pay. Wage differences often reflect other, more deep-seated inequalities throughout the employment process within an organisation. Based on the leaky pipeline literature, which analyses gender imbalances by increasing hierarchy levels, CORESO offers a comprehensive solution to identify sources of inequality and corrective measures for private and public entities.

Your company is based in Switzerland and employs 100 people or more?

Find out how we can support you in analysing gender pay gaps by identifying the causes and the best corrective actions for your organisation. Download here our information guide "Complying with the new legal requirements for gender equality in Switzerland" that explains the context and the application process in a nutshell.

Adopt a systemic and participatory approach to your analysis

Through collaborative modelling, CORESO conducts an in-depth analysis that allows public and private entities to evaluate interventions under a participatory approach and a perspective of complex systems to tackle sources of inequality at work.

In a first step, we define with the organisation taking part the objective towards inclusion and identify the stakeholder group. Stakeholder engagement is crucial to get a clear understanding of corporate processes, the organisational structure and dynamics. This may consider, for example, staff from different functions, departments and hierarchical levels, such as management and human resources representatives and even external contributors.

With the help of collective intelligence workshops, we will be able to map the organisational system. The knowledge extracted from the workshop sessions, together with company-specific data on the workforce, is used by our modellers to develop a computational model that intents at identifying imbalances.

Once the stakeholder group validates the model, it will serve as a support tool for the decision-making process. This phase allows for the simulation of possible interventions incorporating various components, resulting from the interactions between stakeholders. The aim is to assess the impact of measures before any implementation occurs.

This process favours a better informed, more balanced decision-making with higher levels of acceptance.
