The gender pay gap measures the difference in average earnings for all male and female employees, regardless of their role or seniority. It provides a snapshot of the gender balance within an organisation, but is distinct from equal pay, which is about ensuring that men and women receive the same remuneration for carrying out work of equal value.
We view the introduction of gender pay gap reporting requirements as an important development in the drive for genuine gender equality at work. It’s also a development that supports the work we are doing to create a more diverse and inclusive working environment.
Our first gender pay gap report (published in January 2018) can be accessed here.
