Gender equality index

Pursuant to the French act "For the freedom to choose one's professional future" of September 5, 2018, businesses with 50 or more employees publish the Index score on professional equality between women and men every year. For the 2021 reference period, BDO's index is 94 points out of 100 (compared to 91 points out of 100 in 2020).

This index is based on four indicators for the calculation as specified but the Decree:

  • Gender pay gap,
  • Gender pay rise gap
  • Proportion of employees returning from maternity leave who received a pay rise when salary increases were granted during their leave,
  • Number of women among the top ten employees with the highest salaries.

In line with its commitment to diversity, BDO (women represent 65% of the workforce at BDO) is taking action on all of the indicators measured in order to reduce the gap between men's and women's pay.

The Diversity Charter adopted by our firm is to demonstrate our commitment, in France, to cultural, ethnic and social diversity within our organisation.
