The Equalities Office has published a report setting out the results of 2018 research involving 900 organisations shortly after the deadline for employers to publish their first set of Gender Pay Gap (GPG) data. 82% felt they had a good understanding of what the GPG is and how it is calculated. Employer attitudes to reducing the GPG varied widely, with 23% allocating it a high priority, 45% a medium priority and 29% a low (or non-) priority. Strategies to reduce their GPG included offering or promoting flexible working (87%), encouraging both men and women to share childcare (76%) and implementing gender-specific recruitment, promotion or mentoring schemes (62%).
