Gender Pay Gap

Last change: January 1, 2024

Declaration on the gender pay gap

VIVA supports the principle of gender neutrality with regard to pay, which is laid down in Article 157 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU). Several countries now legislate to require companies to analyze and report on the gender pay gap, for example:

In Germany, the Pay Transparency Act, which came into force in January 2018, entitles employees to request certain aggregated information on the pay of colleagues of the opposite gender in comparable positions.

In the UK, legislation has required all companies with 250 or more employees to report their gender pay gap annually since April 2017.

We are a small company with less than 200 employees, so we are not required to report on the gender pay gap.
