What is Gender Pay Gap Reporting

What is gender pay gap reporting?

It’s illegal to pay men and women differently for the same work, but the gender pay gap is more complicated than that. Across all industries, women are more likely to work in lower-paid roles, while higher-paid positions are dominated by men.

Gender pay gap reporting helps you identify, explain, and mitigate any pay inequalities in your organisation. It’s also an important tool for the government to understand the gender pay gap across the workforce as a whole, to analyze differences by sector, and to track progress over time.

If you have more than 250 employees, you’re legally obliged to publish a gender pay gap report, but smaller organisations can also choose to participate.

What is Gender Pay Gap Reporting

What do you need to report?

Your gender pay gap report must include figures on men’s and women’s pay, hours, and bonuses. That means gathering detailed payroll data for each employee and calculating averages in a way that makes the numbers comparable.

If you do find that your organisation has a gender pay gap, you can also publish a supporting narrative and an action plan:

  • The supporting narrative contextualises the figures, explaining why a pay gap exists in your organisation and any actions you’ve already taken to close it
  • The action plan explains what you will do to understand and tackle the pay gap

While publishing these documents is voluntary, doing so has clear reputational benefits. Demonstrating your commitment to gender equity in the workplace will help you attract and retain women at all levels of your workforce, bringing you a step closer to closing the gap.
