Responsible Business Workshop: Gender Pay Gap Reporting


Time: to

No. 2 Lochrin Square 96 Fountainbridge

The goal of the workshop will be to support companies in their gender pay gap reporting journey: explaining the pay gap, why it exists, the driving factors behind it and how to communicate it to employees and the general public.

By 4 April 2018, every UK organisation with 250 employees or more must publish their gender pay gap. With the deadline just five months away, many businesses have now crunched their numbers but analysing the data is only the starting point.

Deciding how, where and when to present that data is critical to success.

Your contextual narrative will be key in effectively positioning your results, both within and outside the business. Without this story, the figures may be misinterpreted by employees, investors and the public.

At this critical time in your journey to publishing your figures, BITC’s Gender Equality Campaign invites you to take part in an event to discuss best practice and help you mitigate against adverse reactions.

This workshop will look at:

  • Understanding your gender pay gap
  • Writing an effective narrative to tell your story
  • Communicating your report internally and externally

This workshop is primarily aimed at:

  • Those in HR, diversity & inclusion, communications, or elsewhere in the business involved with interpreting and reporting on gender pay gap data.
  • Both organisations who are preparing to report their gender pay gap data for the first time and organisations who have reported already and want to reflect on lessons learned.

Our thanks to DWF for kindly hosting this event.
