Global professional services firm PwC has revealed that it pays its Black, Asian and minority-ethnic staff in the UK almost 13 per cent less than other employees in the country.

In a report on Monday, the company said that it had published the figures in an effort to “shine the spotlight on ethnicity in the workplace and encourage organisations to take action”.

“We need to start looking beyond the narrow lense of gender, otherwise true workplace diversity won’t be achieved,” said Kevin Ellis, chairman and senior partner at PwC.
