How to close the gender pay gap – expert analysis, support and action-planning
Early November currently marks the time in our calendars that women in the UK effectively start to work for free, such is the extent of gender inequality in the workplace.
The gender pay gap is the measure of the difference between men’s and women’s average earnings across an organisation or the labour market. In the UK, the gender pay gap still stands at over 9%. According to the World Economic Forum, 2017 marked the first year that the gender pay gap had widened since 2006.
We recognise that the gender pay gap is a complex issue – there are no magic bullets here. By drawing on over 25 years of experience in diversity and inclusion consultancy, we are best placed to address those structural and cultural barriers to gender equality that can affect even the best-intentioned of organisations. We’re specialists in addressing unconscious bias, and the impact it can have on the recruitment, retention and promotion of women. And we’re expert proponents of creating inclusive cultures at work, allowing our clients to maximise the talent and potential of their employees, whatever their gender.
