Background: Logib-D

equal pacE is based on the Logib-D project run in Germany. Logib-D was introduced in 2009 and stands for “pay equality in companies – Germany”. It is funded by the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ). Via the website www.logib-d.de the Logib-D web tool is accessible to interested companies that wish to analyse their pay structures, the size of a potential gender pay gap and its key drivers. By using the Logib-D web tool companies can find starting points for their human resource management to foster gender equality and diversity.

In addition, the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth provided a Logib-D-based consulting package for 200 companies free of charge. This programme expired at the end of 2013. Interested companies had the opportunity to apply for a consulting package. A high-ranking advisory board with representatives from the BMFSFJ, trade unions, employers’ associations and companies was responsible for the selection of companies that would receive the consultation package. An advanced analysis based on Logib-D was performed in cooperation with a consulting company specialising in compensation issues. The results of the analysis and proposals to promote gender equality and diversity were discussed in workshops at each of the participating companies.

After successfully completing the Logib-D consulting process each company was awarded the label “Logib-D geprüft” (Logib-D approved) by a high-ranking representative of the BMFSFJ. The label demonstrates the participation of the company in the Logib-D consultation process and shows its awareness for issues of gender pay equality. Each participating company was also entitled to take part in the Logib-D Erfahrungszirkel (Logib-D network meeting), which was a series of meetings for discussing findings and ideas. The award ceremony was effective in disseminating knowledge and information about gender pay equality. Awarded companies took advantage of the label in public relations and employer branding. Please also note some selected testimonials on this website.
