Seminar content

This seminar will provide a step by step guide to meeting the requirements of gender pay reporting, which, from April 2017, became mandatory for employers with 250 or more employees. By 4 April this year, such employers will have to undertake detailed pay analysis and calculations and publish six separate reports, including overall gender pay gap figures, gender bonus gap information and proportions of male and female employees in quartile pay bands. For employers who have not yet completed (or even begun!) their reports, EEF will explain how best to proceed and how to utilise the 'narrative' that we recommend you produce alongside your reports. We will also provide guidance on the steps you could take to narrow your gender pay gap, together with the communications around this.

HR managers, Finance Directors, Members and Non Members should attend.

All times are 9.45 to 13.00 (with registration and coffee from 09.30)

By attending this seminar, delegates will:

  • Understand the legal requirements for reporting on the overall gender pay gap, the gender bonus gap, the proportion of men and women receiving bonus pay and the proportions of men and women in each of the four pay quartiles.
  • Know what you need to do and how best to do it.
  • Appreciate the 'grey areas' and difficulties around the gender pay calculations and know how to find solutions to them.
  • Consider the potential consequences of gender pay reporting for your business.
  • Consider how you might best present your figures, what metrics you might voluntarily publish to set your figures in context, and what 'narrative' you might provide. 
  • Appreciate what benchmarking may be applicable for your organisation, taking into account the gender pay reports already published on the Government website.  
  • Learn how to identify the causes of your pay gap and what steps your organisation might take to seek to narrow the gap.
