The Government Equalities Office have published two February 2019 guidances to help employers identify potential causes of the gender pay gap (GPG) and develop an effective action plan to tackle it.
‘Eight ways to understand your gender pay gap’ (pdf) helps companies identify different potential causes of the GPG. Alongside this, the GEO have published a four-step guide to help companies develop an effective GPG action plan (pdf).
Minister for Women Victoria Atkins states:
“The gender pay gap is at its lowest level on record, but that is still not good enough if we want to achieve real gender equality in the work place”.
“We want employers to understand the causes of their gender pay gap and create action plans that will close those gaps for good”.
