We offer a wide range of services related to salary analysis, from in-depth examinations to coaching on specific salary issues. In addition, our Logib workshops are recognized by the Swiss government. Get expert advice from a team with over 20 years of experience in the field of Diversity & Inclusion.

From Logib workshops for statisticians among HR professionals to salary analyses with comprehensive coaching. With sound expertise in the field, we offer the following services in the area of salary analysis:

Logib workshops

The federal government provides the “Logib” tool for wage analyses. The tool can be used for all Swiss companies. However, it only partially considers the wage functions of individual companies. With a little practice, the data can be fed into the tool within a day. However, you will face unforeseeable obstacles and the interpretation of the data is not always easy. We are an official partner of the federal government and offer one-day Logib workshops. Take part in a training course and get ready to use the wage analysis tool without external support in the future.

Logib workshops | 9am – 5pm | Fr. 358.- | More information: theresa.goop@unisg.ch

Coaching and consulting

Perhaps you have already entered your personnel data into Logib. But do you fully understand the results? We evaluate your data and results in depth. We will discuss these with you and answer questions like:

  • Have the data been specified correctly in Logib?
  • How should the results be interpreted?
  • What can the results be used for?
  • Where exactly is there a need for action?
  • Which further analyses are useful for you?

Cost: according to effort


Wage analysis based on Logib

Leave the wage analysis to the experts. One of your advantages is that we take your raw personnel data and do the entire analysis – without the need for your internal resources. You will receive a report with information about the method, your results and an interpretation as well as graphs of your data from different perspectives.  In addition, you will receive concrete recommendations for action.

More than just Logib: In addition to the official Logib result, you will gain insights into how strongly personal and professional characteristics affect wages. We also include characteristics such as family status and nationality to uncover additional potential for discrimination.

The “We Pay Fair” label is included if your result is below the tolerance threshold of 5%.

Cost: 6000.- CHF (excl. VAT)


Subgroup analyses

Do you suspect that individual groups of employees may be distorting your wage analysis? The Logib result is based on average analyses and can therefore, for example, “mask” wage discrimination against women in one department with wage discrimination against men in another department. We find out for you whether this is happening in your organisation and answer questions in a report such as:

  • Which groups of employees are most affected by potential pay discrimination?
  • Do the Logib results look different for different subgroups (and why)?

Cost: upon request

Identification of employees with untapped potential

Would you like to go a step further after conducting the salary analysis? Even if your employees are being paid fairly, it may be that you are not yet fully exploiting their potential. Perhaps there are individuals who, based on their training, could occupy a higher position than their current employment? We will indicate the individuals who stand out according to your data structure and who you should take another look at.

Cost: upon request

Advanced statistical wage analysis models

Equal pay can be analyzed using a variety of methods. We address which method is appropriate in your situation and apply different statistical models that analyze your data without skewing the results. In this way, distortions
caused by outlier wages can be avoided.

Cost: upon request

Practical Experiences

Corina Merz


«AXA has been intensively committed to gender equality for years and strives for equality in all dimensions of work - in particular also equal pay. That is why the "Gender Pay Gap" at AXA is comparatively small: the unexplained wage difference at AXA is currently less than 2.5 percent. For this reason, we have received the "We pay fairly" certificate from the University of St. Gallen for the second time in a row.»
