Methodologically, Logib is based on a semi-logarithmic OLS regression analysis.
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.
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.
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.
No. All statistical analyses can only be viewed by the relevant users. Data are neither transferred to third parties, nor further processed.
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.
For the purpose of equal pay analysis, users can use a person’s official gender.
Employers are free to publicly communicate the results of their equal pay analysis. Only public sector employers are required to publish their results.
