The Snap General Election and the Gender Pay Gap – Reflections by Sian Webb, Gapsquare

“The snap general election was mainly focused on Brexit, yet all parties produced manifestos which will pave the way for policy and governance over the next five years.”

“Equality and diversity has ignited both the public and politicians alike, with women’s rights being at the forefront of activism, 2018 being the centenary of women’s suffrage and three formidable political leaders Sturgeon, Davidson and May seen as reaching the tipping point for equal gendered representation in politics. A McKinsey report published in 2015 stated that gender diverse companies are 15% more likely to outperform than their competitors, and ethnically diverse companies are 35% more likely to outperform, and so it is critical to understand what the political parties say about tackling equality and diversity within business.”

How your law firm will lead on closing the gender pay gap

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-15-28-41For law firms across the country, the 2017 gender pay gap regulations represent an opportunity.  As the deadline for the analysis of the Gender Pay Gap and Bonus Gap for the The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 grows closer, the urgency for legal firms is both in demonstrating positive action within their own organisations and in providing clients with necessary legal support and practical guidance for compliance. It’s high time to assume the mantle as leaders in ending the gender pay gap, and inspire those you work with to do the same.

“Working with Gapsquare has enabled many of our clients to see at a glance where any gender pay gaps exist and to analyse the factors behind the statistics. With the insights gathered from these analytics, they can now take positive steps to address any issues ahead of the gender pay snap-shot date, and well before the deadline for publishing their data”.

 “It was clear to us that many employers would need advice and support at an early stage on the new gender pay gap reporting regime.  And we felt it was crucial that this advice covered not only the mechanics of the reporting exercise itself but the wider ramifications for the business… To that end, we built contacts with relevant stakeholders such as the Government Equalities Office, Gapsquare and Deloitte… “.
