Nearly a third of senior managers think gender pay gap ‘isn’t a problem’
Women’s decisions to take career breaks or work part time are blamed for pay gap, survey finds
Nearly a third of senior managers do not believe the gender pay gap is an issue for businesses, despite the current gap for full-time employees being 13.9 per cent.
Research carried out by HR and payroll provider NGA Human Resources, which polled more than 250 senior decision-makers who will be affected by the incoming gender pay gap reporting regulations, revealed that 29 per cent of senior staff did not recognise the importance of the gender pay gap. A third (35 per cent) of men surveyed said the pay divide was not an issue, compared to one fifth (22 per cent) of women. A further 14 per cent of men said that it wasn’t necessary to have a plan in place to tackle the gap.
