From 2017, any organisation that has 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of men and women, expressed relative to men’s earnings. For example, ‘women earn 15% less than men per hour’.

The webinar has been designed for public sector managers responsible for pay gap reporting and those interested in using payroll and HR insights to build inclusive and dynamic teams . As we are now 6 months closer to the deadline for reporting, this will be an opportunity to share trends on gender pay gap reporting, discuss challenges, and best ways to utilise the data for reporting.

The webinar includes the following topics:

  • Data trends we are seeing in the public sector and how data can help plan actions to narrow the gap;
  • Challenges interpreting legal requirements, specifically in relation to included and excluded elements of pay;
  • Case studies from public bodies which have already reported outlining challenges and data constraints;
  • Time for specific questions and answers.

The webinar is organised by Gapsquare with the support of our partners and features the following speakers:
