Reporting the Pay Gap: Six Simple Steps to Compliance

Posted by Hazel Lush on 14-Feb-2018 10:27:11

As we move towards gender pay gap reporting deadlines, there are still over 6,000 employers peaking over the precipice of the pay gap, yet to report and still struggling with how to tackle pay gap information – what can we learn from the story so far?

Currently in the midst of pay gap drama are organisations like the BBC, who, having gone beyond the regulations, revealed controversial data that it went on to neither immediately tackle or explain well to its teams or the media. Also in the news are EasyJet who discovered that lack of female pilots and unequal distribution of the genders across the pay quartiles make for a 51.7% pay pay gap. In the last few days we’ve also heard that Wellcome Trust have a pay gap of 30%. The gender pay gap regulations are leaving no stone unturned, no industry, sector or company is immune to the revelations of the pay gap data - but there is no need to panic ahead of the deadlines. We've outlined 6 steps to help you when reporting the gap that you can tackle as the deadline approaches.

PAY TRANSPARENCY AND THE GENERAL ELECTION 2017 – YOUR IMPRESSION

Posted by Zara Nanu on 17-May-2017 11:34:00

Brenda from Bristol is not the only cool thing coming out of Bristol this General Election 2017.

Between now and June 8th, Bristol based startup Gapsquare will be scrutinising Party Manifestos and candidate speeches to identify their specific stance on pay transparency. These include policies on gender and ethnicity pay gap.

Besides subjecting Manifestos to analysis, we will be reviewing ways in which different parties’ economic and social policy proposals would impact pay for various minority groups. Based on these insights, we will be developing predictive models to see how the pay gaps could evolve in the next 5 years.

But we can’t do it without you. We’d like to encourage everybody to send us any articles, speeches, references, notes, minutes of meetings, gossip as well as the occasional Wicked Whispers about candidate’s take on pay transparency to zara.nanu@gapsquare.com.

Results will be published in early June 2017.
