Gender Pay Gap Reporting online service 8 March 2017
From April 2017, Gender Pay Gap reporting regulations will require all employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing the pay gap between their male and female employees. These results must be published on the employer’s own website and the government site.
The Government Equalities Office (GEO) is keen to get feedback from those who will be reporting so that they can design the service to be as useful and as user friendly as possible.
The GEO is looking for HR and Payroll professionals who will help them to improve the government Gender Pay Gap Reporting online service, either by answering questions in an online survey and/or by attending workshops being held in London. Ideally, they want to talk to staff directly involved with gathering their organisation’s data, making calculations, and publishing/reporting the final figures.
Please email any of the contacts below if you would be interested in participating in a workshop or a 1-2-1 session.
email@example.com , firstname.lastname@example.org email@example.com
Alternatively, the online survey covers the very start of the gender pay gap reporting process and previews some of the GOV.UK guidance that will be available. It takes about twenty minutes to complete (and that’s mostly because of the length of the guidance).

Your input will help the GEO make the guidance and reporting service clearer and more helpful for all employers. Thank you.

Gender Pay Gap regulations now in force 7 April 2017
Gender pay reporting legislation requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.
The UK is one of the first countries in the world to require gender pay gap reporting and follows the government’s commitment to introduce the requirements at the last election. This is a key part of the government’s work to eliminate the gender pay gap. Voluntary, private and public sector employers with 250 or more employees will be required to publish their figures by April 2018 (using a ‘snap shot’ from April 2017 data). The regulations will cover approximately 9,000 employers with over 15 million employees, representing nearly half of the UK’s workforce.
The UK gender pay is already at a record low of 18.1 per cent. These requirements will help employers to identify the gaps in their organisations and take action to close the gender pay gap.
