New guidance to help employers close gender pay gap
Article by:Makbool Javaid |
The Government Equalities Office has published two new pieces of guidance to help employers identify potential causes of the gender pay gap and develop an effective action plan to tackle it. ‘Eight ways to understand your gender pay gap’ asks companies to identify potential areas for improvement, such as: whether women tend to enter the company in lower paid positions than men and whether there is a difference in performance scores within the organisation in relation to gender. GPG action plan encourages employers to analyse and understand why they have a gap, work with staff to find out what they can do better and then develop an action plan.
