This upcoming knowledge-sharing event is a valuable opportunity for employers to hear how other teams are closing their gender pay gap.

Closing the Gender Pay Gap

As of 2017, UK employers with more than 250 staff are legally required to report their company’s gender pay gap — and customers, clients, and potential candidates are watching.

This upcoming knowledge-sharing event is a valuable opportunity for employers to hear how other teams are closing their gender pay gap, which can have a multitude of business benefits: 

79% of respondents are turned off by a poor gender pay gap
