Communicating the gender pay gap

In the wake of the BBC and Financial Times’ publication of pay data, companies are approaching gender pay reporting requirements with trepidation. The worry is that the reasons behind pay gap data will be lost once statistics are revealed. But it doesn’t need to be that way. As the team at Gapsquare - experts in analysing the gender pay gap - argue, publishing data can be an opportunity to foster deeper understanding among your teams around the pay gap and an opportunity to show how your business moves forward on equality issues. In short, publicising pay gap data can be an exercise in showing how your company responds to greater understanding of its structure.

It is interesting to note that bonus pay gaps are particularly stark, TSB Bank, Virgin Money and Fujitsu Services are all hovering around a 50% pay gap in bonus pay. These companies benefit hugely from a clear narrative around their data. An example can be drawn from Virgin Money, who’s response to the data was to set out the causes of the pay gap and outline their mission going forward

The last five days must have been somewhat of a headache for Tony Hall, BBC Director-General. First, the damning list of salaries that showed that lack of female high earners and gender pay disparity, followed by some of the BBC’s most high-profile female personalities writing a frank open letter calling him to “act now” to tackle the gender pay gap, rather than waiting until 2020 for it to be eliminated. It has certainly made headline news and spread to extensive conversations from within the BBC, the general workplace, to the pub with friends on the weekend.
