Gender pay gap 3? True measures and remedy

Who should attend

In-house employment lawyers, HR professionals and compliance specialists in all industries.


Employers have reported and published their pay gap statistics for the second time and even government employers have made mistakes*. The average pay gap barely changed from last year’s figure of 9.7% and, in almost half of employers, the gap widened. Employers may explain their figures with a narrative, that contextualises their data, but only a third have done so.

Cultural bias, societal assumptions and job design all contribute to the gender pay gap. Unless employers fully understand the components of compensation analysis that explains gender pay differences they will not address their pay gap in an enduring way. With an expert pay analyst this briefing covers the stats and calculations you need in order to show the progress your staff, customers and recruitment candidates expect to see.
