Avoid these common mistakes when analysing your gender pay gap

Sian Webb, Partnerships Manager at Gapsquare shares some Gender Pay Gap wisdom with the Talk With Stitch team.

“As someone who spends a lot of my time looking and analysing numbers and figures, not a lot surprises me these days! However, I have been surprised at the number of charities and businesses that are reporting a higher than average gender pay gap and not accompanying it with an explanation or narrative about why they have one and importantly, what they are going to do to reduce it over the coming years.”


“The important thing for companies to see is not the actual figure in year one, but that it is improves and reduces in years 2 and 3. It is critical therefore that they get to grips with what exactly causes the gender pay gap in the first place (which is where Gapsquare comes in!) and so that they can put in place gender pay initiatives so that it will start improving and reducing gap in gender pay”
