Gender, Ethnicity and Disability Pay Gaps Conference for EmployersLondon, Venue TBC
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), yet it seems greater levels of transparency are still required with ethnicity and disability pay gaps also under scrutiny.
Registration fee: £395 plus VAT per delegate
Since the legislation came to pass, we have seen the reputation of some of Britain's most high profile employers seriously damaged following legally enforced publications of substantial gender pay gaps. With high demand for labour and an intensifying battle to attract top talent and retain staff, organisations must ensure they have a narrative to explain such gaps. But a narrative on its own is not enough. With such wide media coverage, candidates and staff are actively looking to employers to demonstrate the action they are taking to close not only their gender pay gaps, but also their ethnicity and disability pay gaps. Employers who take the initiative and address this now will have a clear competitive advantage.
Following the successful launch of BFI's Gender Pay Gap Conference for Employers last year, this conference will be a practical hands-on day where delegates will receive clear guidance and support with strategies to address their gender and ethnicity pay gaps and to become an employer of choice.
