Expert gender pay gap insight for reporting businesses
Due to the gender pay gap, on 18th November each year, women in the UK effectively stop earning a salary. Despite increasing awareness of the issue – from the boardroom to the sports arena—the UK gender pay gap actually increased in 2021 from 14.9% to 15.4%. In the finance sector, it’s as high as 30%. But the business case for gender parity is a strong one: closing gender pay gaps at work could add £150 billion to UK GDP by 2025. Our team of specialist diversity consultants will work with you to analyze your gender pay gap reporting more effectively and to respond to the insights that fuel meaningful progress.
