Gender pay gap reporting

Gender pay gap reporting presents an ideal opportunity for your organisation to collate data on your gender diversity challenges and develop strategies to address them.

This will enable you to effect change and help promote long-term growth.

Employers with 250 or more employees must publish their gender pay gap results annually, by the 4 April for employers in the private and voluntary sectors, and by 30 March for public sector employers, with the first reports to be published by 4 April 2018 and 30 March 2018 respectively.

Helping you make the most of this opportunity

Producing a gender pay gap report presents a number of challenges, from collecting the right data (which will typically need to be extracted from several data sources) and correctly undertaking the calculations to understanding what they mean and communicating the results. Employers can use this exercise as an opportunity to develop and communicate an effective long-term strategy for addressing diversity issues.

We have developed a range of diagnostic tools, which, combined with our experience, can help you meet these challenges.

Using our benchmarking tool, we can also show you how your results compare with organisations who have already published their results.

Private and voluntary sector employers must publish a statement of accuracy alongside their results. We can provide you with comfort that your results are accurate, which will assist you in providing the statement of accuracy. This may take the form of a health check of how you have treated your pay component and the methodology used, or a more formal assurance.

We can also work with you to offer insight into what your results are showing, help you develop a targeted strategy to address identified gender pay gaps and effect positive change and assist you in communicating your results.
