Ensuring equity between
men and women

In order to promote excellence and support our human values, the CTCPA implements management principles that ensure equity among its employees and in particular equal treatment between women and men.

Our M/F equality index has been updated, and we have obtained a score of 78/100.

To calculate this index, 4 indicators must be taken into account for companies with 50 to 249 employees. Here are the detailed scores for each criterion:

  • gender pay gap (from 0 to 40 points): CRITERION 1 = 33/40 ;
  • the difference in the distribution of individual increases between women and men (from 0 to 35 points for companies with 50 to 249 employees): CRITERION 2 = 25/35 ;
  • the rate of employees receiving a pay rise in the year following their return from maternity leave (from 0 to 15 points): CRITERION 3 = 15/15 ;
  • the number of employees of the under-represented sex among the company's 10 highest earners (from 0 to 10 points): CRITERION 4 = 5/10 ;

The index is calculated by adding up the number of points obtained for each indicator. The maximum total score is 100 points.
