Cybersecurity McAfee has claimed it has achieved global gender pay parity.
The company defines gender pay parity as "fair and equal pay for employees in the same job, level and location, controlling for pay differentiators such as performance, tenure and experience, regardless of gender.”
Through an audit covering 45 countries and more than 7,000 employees, McAfee claims it identified gender pay gaps in nine countries. Closing the gap required an investment of $4 million.
According to the company, salary adjustments were made on April 1, 2019, and the company will continue to monitor and address pay parity annually.
Chatelle Lynch, chief human resources officer for McAfee, said: “By achieving gender pay parity at McAfee, we continue to live our values, build an inclusive culture, create better workplaces, and develop stronger communities.
"I’m honoured to join companies beyond the world of cyber already striving towards pay parity, and I hope more will join us in reaching this milestone in equality.”
