Major Fashion Names Among Worst Offenders in Britain Gender Pay Gap

NEW Pay Equity Day Focuses on Wage Gap in NL Takeaways: What Drives the Wage Gap?

In Ireland, the Government has committed to the introduction of mandatory gender pay gap reporting legislation similar to the UK Regulations.

On the flipside are the media owners that heavily favour men in their gender pay gaps. Goldman Sachs Group Inc. pays its female staff on average 56 percent less than men at the bank, while Lloyds Banking Group Plc pays women about a third less than men.

ITN chief executive John Hardie has said he will "not receive a penny" in bonus pay unless he hits new targets on "strict" gender and diversity objectives alongside existing financial ones.

The gender pay gap is the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women.

"It's so important for organizations to think about how they're potentially contributing to the ways we value or undervalue the work that women do", Frank said. The lack of quality part-time and flexible working means that many women end up working in the only part-time work that's available, and that's usually in lower paid jobs and sectors.

There has been some criticism of the method as a way of measuring pay disparity because it does not break down comparable roles, age, experience or time taken off work.

The Icelandic initiative sought to address chronic hurdles that block women around the world from higher-paying positions.

The Manchester-based hosting provider now has a mean average gender pay gap of 0.9 per cent - meaning women are paid less than men - and a three per cent pay gap when calculated as a median average. Too often they don't get considered for better paid roles, and because they don't get the same chances as men, they lose the aspiration to apply for the higher paid jobs. Over this time frame, 8% of both female and male employees received bonus payments, which equates to 58 women and four men.

The National Women's Council of Ireland (NWCI) has called on the government to make gender pay gap reports mandatory in Ireland too.

Among UK agencies, the companies with the biggest mean gender pay gaps were WPP's holding company, WPP 2005 Ltd (42.2%), WPP-owned agency J Walter Thompson (38.8%), DDB (38.1%), OMD EMEA (35%) and Kantar UK (33.3%).

"The pressing issue for those employers will be what steps, if any, they are seen to be taking to tackle this gap".

Isaaman says there are exceptions however, highlighting King's figures in particular.

The Pay Gap Increases as Women Progress in Their Careers -The typical 20 to 29 year-old woman earns 81.8 cents on the dollar compared to her male counterparts.

By contrast, the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) reported a pay gap of 13.1% in favour of men, which means on average women earn 87p for every £1 men earn.

The announcement is a legal requirement and has seen several big music companies - including the majors and Live Nation - opening up their executive pay structure to closer scrutiny.

To coincide with the deadline on Wednesday, British women started a #PayMeToo hashtag campaign on Twitter, encouraging employees to talk to one another about how much they are paid.

'But even better than that, finally women are realising that they have a right to talk about pay and they can not be silenced.

Over a five-year period, the gap decreased in only 10 of the 30 European countries we looked at. "We have to show we're watching what happens next".
