The first reporting deadlines have passed with over 10,000 employers publishing their figures for the 2017 reporting year. Of the 10,000 who have published their figures, the median pay gap is around 10% – almost half the national average. However for some, a much larger gap exists. The focus now is very much on what employers are going to do next.
Many employers chose to explain their figures in a more detailed report, setting out how they propose to address any pay or bonus gap. It is hoped that in putting together an action plan, employers will take tangible steps towards addressing pay inequality and driving the diversity agenda forward. The big question is how and there is no easy fix; the right action plan will depend on the issues faced by the individual employer. Nevertheless there are common themes and key areas that all employers will benefit from considering.
Join us for a round table discussion – in conjunction with EHRC – on 7 June to share your experiences in compiling your first gender pay gap reports and discuss how you will be tackling diversity in your organisation going forward.
We will be joined by Dr Alison Parken who will share insights from collaborative research with employers to identify the causes of organisational pay gaps and embed long-term change.
