04 Apr Companies in East of England have “failed to take control” of the gender pay gap
Companies in the East of England are showing 10.4% Gender pay gap for median gross hourly earnings (excluding overtime), ONS figures 2018
Ann Francke CEO of The Chartered Management Institute (CMI) ahead of the deadline for private sector companies to report the gender pay gap in their workforce has said that companies in the East of England are not doing enough to address the gender pay gap (GPG).
“The median pay gap appears to have widened across the board, with many companies expected to report a greater gap than last year. The numbers are clearly not moving in the right direction. We have failed to take back control of our gender pay gap (GPG).”
“Too many organisations have settled for ticking boxes rather deal with gender pay gap, an outcome I think can be laid at Brexit’s door. Most leaders have been preoccupied preparing plans for a dizzying array of outcomes whilst in parallel investing in no-deal preparations they hope won’t come to pass. They only have a discrete amount of time in the day, and Brexit has taken up all the breathing space. Gender Pay Gap has been starved of oxygen in businesses and boardrooms across the East of England.”
