Document Abstract

Bridging the gender pay gap: where now?, IN Human Resource (HR), Sep 2018, pp20-27

Explores the gender pay gap in the UK and discusses current ways in which it is being measured and addressed. Describes the recent gender pay gap reporting initiative, which requires companies with 250 or more employees to investigate the difference between the wages of the male and female employees and publish their findings annually. Analyses the findings, highlighting that 78% of companies reported wage gaps in favour of men. Argues that the availability of gender pay gap data empowers prospective employees and consumers with the ability to facilitate change through their career and consumption choices. Recommends that when the statistics are published next year, the conversation should focus on how diversity is being fostered in the organisations.
