1.1 WHAT CALCULATIONS ARE APPLIED TO THE DATA?
Methodologically, Logib is based on a semi-logarithmic OLS regression analysis.
1.2 MY COMPANY ONLY EMPLOYS WOMEN / MEN. CAN I STILL USE THE TOOL?
No. If the workforce is entirely composed of women or entirely composed of men, it is impossible to analyze gender pay equality. The analysis can be carried out for a minimum workforce of 50 employees, with at least one person of the opposite sex.
1.3 HOW DO I BENEFIT FROM AN IN-HOUSE EQUAL PAY ANALYSIS? WHAT IS THE ADDED VALUE FOR ME?
Unequal pay, whether genuine or perceived, has a negative impact on employee motivation. By carrying out an equal pay analysis, employers can show their employees they take the matter seriously. Also, one should not underestimate the impact of the equal pay analysis on the outside world: a company demonstrating it pays equal wages has the image of being a modern employer.
1.4 WHO USES LOGIB
A number of European countries (notably Germany, Finland, France, Great Britain, Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal and the Czech Republic) use the Confederation’s standard analysis form. The European Union has developed an online tool, Equal Pace, which is also based on Logib.
2.1 ARE THE PAY DATA PROCESSED STATISTICALLY ANALYZED?
No. All statistical analyses can only be viewed by the relevant users. Data are neither transferred to third parties, nor further processed.
3.1 WHAT IS THE MAXIMUM NUMBER OF DATA SETS I CAN IMPORT?
Logib is designed to work with up to 100,000 data sets. Beyond this number, the application is not guaranteed to work as it should.
3.2 SOME OF MY EMPLOYEES DO NOT WISH TO BE IDENTIFIED AS WOMEN OR AS MEN. HOW SHOULD I ENTER THEM?
For the purpose of equal pay analysis, users can use a person’s official gender.
4.1 ARE DATA SAVED/SENT TO THIRD PARTIES?
Your pay data are not saved. You are the only one to have access.
5.1 DO I HAVE THE RIGHT TO PUBLISH THE RESULTS OF MY PAY ANALYSIS?
Employers are free to publicly communicate the results of their equal pay analysis. Only public sector employers are required to publish their results.
