The Business Continuity Institute has published the results of a survey which examined the salaries of business continuity professionals from across the world, and made comparisons between different demographics and factors.
One of the key findings in the Global Salary Benchmarking Report is that there is a large gender pay gap, with female business continuity professionals in Europe being paid a staggering 37 percent less than their male counterparts, while those in North America received 19 percent less. Of course there may be a number of variables that contribute to this, but the fact remains that there is a significant salary imbalance between men and women: something that the profession needs to address.
The survey also found that BCI certified members earned more than their non-certified colleagues by up to 30 percent. In Europe the figure was 30 percent, while in Australasia and North America it was 18 percent.
