How Urs is building a better working world

It is the employees who create the value and success of a company. Companies therefore need to strive for a fair and equitable salary system that serves as a basis for the motivation and loyalty of all employees to the company and is in line with the company's central goals. Urs offers specific consulting in this field and has developed several tools to analyze and introduce pay equity in companies of various sectors. He is a well-known pioneer in the implementation of pay equity in Switzerland and has strongly promoted it.
