Gender Pay Gap Conference For Employers: Preparing Your Organisation For Staff and Public Scrutiny

Date Wednesday 22 November 2017
Venue London - Danubius Hotel Regents Park, London NW8 7JT

The legislation for gender pay gap reporting came into force on 6th April 2017, affecting public, private and voluntary sector employers. The act requires employers to comply with a level of “unprecedented transparency” (Chartered Management Institute).

On 4th April 2018, charities, public and private sector employers with 250 or more employees must publish the results of their gender pay gap analysis on the company website, where it must remain in plain sight of all key stakeholders for at least 3 years.

Employers without a narrative for such gaps risk serious reputational damage, staff tensions and disputes, as echoed by the recent mainstream media coverage of the BBC scandal. Failure to conduct the analysis is an infringement of law, but failing to understand the deeper progression related issues which lie behind the results misses the point of the metric altogether.
