WORKPLACE has published its 5th annual gender and ethnicity pay gap report this month. Annual pay gap reporting is one part of the company's action plan to champion equality, diversity and inclusion across all of its work. The report includes a set of practical actions to support a diverse workforce and inclusive culture including reviewing how staff are recruited and developed, and supporting leadership development within the business. So, what exactly is the Gender Pay Gap?
Gender pay gap reporting legislation will require large employers to publish their overall mean and median gender pay gaps from 2018. Under the new laws, employers will have to calculate their gender pay gap from April 2017 and publish the details by April 2018. This week in the news it was reported that the BBC is facing a backlash from female stars over pay after revealing that only third of its 96 top earners are women and the top seven are all men.
