Closing the gender pay gap is top priority for majority of UK firms

Companies have made reducing their gender pay gap a top priority since the introduction of gender pay reporting in 2017, according to new research commissioned by the Government Equalities Office (GEO).

Almost seven in 10 (69 per cent) employers now view closing the gender pay gap as a “high or medium” priority, an increase of eight per cent on last year, and more than two-thirds (67 per cent) of companies reported having discussions at board level on how to close the gap.

The research comes as the GEO publishes two new pieces of guidance to help businesses analyse their pay gap. They provide step-by-step advice for employers to identify potential causes of their organisation’s gender pay gap and develop an effective action plan to tackle it.
