Business joins with Boston Women’s Workforce Council and Mayor of
Boston to commit to closing the gender wage gap

WESTFORD, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Tyco Security Products, part of Johnson Controls, has recently signed on
to 100% Talent: The Boston Women’s Compact, a
first-in-the-nation, business community-driven effort to level the
playing field for working women. By signing the 100% Talent Compact,
Tyco Security Products has joined forces with the Boston Women’s
Workforce Council, a public-private partnership between the City of
Boston and Boston University, and close to 200 other Boston-area
employers to close the gender wage gap.

According to the Boston Women’s Workforce Council’s 2016 report, women
who work in Greater Boston earn significantly less than their male
colleagues, while women are the majority of both Boston’s residents and
workforce. Tyco Security Products recognizes that this pay discrepancy
poses consequences on the company’s talent pool and that women are one
of Boston’s assets: when women thrive, companies and communities thrive.

“Tyco Security Products is pleased to participate in such an
important endeavor,
” said Anita Santos, Vice President, Marketing,
Tyco Security Products. “We recognize that women should receive fair
pay not only because they deserve it and it is the right thing to do,
but also because we all succeed when everyone has similar opportunities.
With women in Boston making up more than half of the workforce, not only
do families do better, but so does the city’s economy.”

The Council’s mission is to work with the businesses in the Greater
Boston area in a private-public endeavor to eliminate the gender wage
gap, remove the visible and invisible barriers to women’s advancement,
and ensure that 100 percent of the talent pool is used to make Boston
the best area in the country for working women. As a signer of the 100%
Talent, Tyco Security Products will work with the Council to take
concrete, measurable steps to eliminate the wage gap within its own
company and to report its progress anonymously every two years.
