Mercer can help you with gender pay gap reporting
There are a number of key elements employers need to consider when conducting their mandatory gender pay gap reporting. Firstly, this is going to be a yearly process and not a once off occurrence, so it needs to be fully understood and streamlined into your business activities.
It is not just about ensuring you gather all the correct data necessary to make your calculations and then producing your results, you need to be able to manage the narrative as you want to ensure any gaps are adequately explained. You also need to remember that your gender pay gap report will be published, so it will be available to any member of the public. Both your current employees and any potential new employees can search for and avail of this information at any given time. It is not only a legal requirement for your company, it is to ensure you are treating all of your employees equally.
