It is a year since the Government made gender pay reporting mandatory across the UK and employers have been publishing their second set of figures. Last year we learned a lot about where we were in terms of the scale of the issue; this year gives the first opportunity to gauge how much progress has been made.
We will be exploring this question in our upcoming report, which will analyse the newly published statistics. We will look at what the numbers tell us about the rate of progress and how this has been achieved, and getting beneath the figures to share our experience of how employers can put in place effective action plans to tackle the gap.
At our launch event on Thursday, 9 May 2019, we will be discussing our findings and hearing about employers’ experience of year 2 of the new regime - from the challenges of producing and explaining the figures to the question of how gender pay reporting fits within the wider approach to the issues of diversity and inclusion and pay fairness. We will consider whether the regime is meeting the Government’s objectives and we will look forward to how it might evolve in the future.
There will be the opportunity to hear from leaders on key topics such as HR systems, employment law, data & analytics, diversity & inclusion and employee engagement, plus a panel discussion with peers from across UK organisations.
We will be releasing a detailed agenda in the coming weeks, but you can register for the event at the link below to secure your place: https://www.pwc.co.uk/services/human-resource-services/gender-pay/pwc-gender-pay-year-two-update-launch-event.html
