Help Gapsquare win at the British Bank Awards 2020

As a fitting round-off to an exciting year of growth and opportunity for Gapsquare, we’re delighted to announce that we have been nominated for the ‘Pioneer Award’ at the British Bank Awards 2020. 

Because the Financial and Banking sector has the largest gender pay gap in the UK, there’s even more scope for an innovative approach to pay analysis, improved diversity and real, tangible change. To be recognised as an innovator within this sector is testimony to our commitment to accelerating social change with tech.

Vote for Gapsquare

Though it’s an honour to be nominated, it would be even better to walk away with the prize - and that’s where you come in. The winners of the British Bank Awards are determined entirely by votes from clients and partners - from any sector, and from any company - and you can exercise your democratic right here.

We see this as an opportunity to have our voice heard, and to champion fair pay in a deserving sector. And if that’s not convincing enough, each vote puts you in with a chance of winning a £1000 cash prize (see the T&Cs here).

We hope your vote in the British Banking Award is as important to you as another one you might be casting in December.

Gapsquare provide an amazing service to not only make this easy for employers to do but also make their data collection much more meaningful. This is why Equality Pays works closely with Gapsquare to ensure that employers are able to measure their pay gaps with accuracy and interpret the data easily.

New call-to-action

I'm Michelle Gyimah, Director at Equality Pays a gender pay gap consultancy and I've been busy reviewing a number of gender pay gap reports. A large proportion of firms have stated that simply hiring more women at senior level is their plan to close their pay gap. With no more detail on why or how.

However this approach is not sustainable or effective for three reasons:
