Genuinely diverse recruitment, a ‘grow your own’ approach to talent, leading by example and an open, high-communications culture are key areas that employers can address to help eliminate gender pay gaps.
As the sixth employer to publish its gender pay reporting statistics, FDM Group, an international professional services organisation focusing on information technology, stands out in its male-dominated sector and beyond. FDM Group has a zero per cent median pay gap, contrasting with the technology sector’s 25 per cent and the UK’s 18 per cent median wage gap.
Just three per cent of the estimated seven thousand employers affected by the gender pay gap reporting legislation have published their figures. Those that have reveal some significant average pay shortfalls for women, with the average of all the median pay gaps already submitted standing at nine per cent.
