Addressing Unequal Pay: Opening Pandora’s Box
With new legislation to be introduced within the next 12 months requiring companies with 250 or more employees to publish their gender pay ratios, this is a hot topic for Reward professionals across the country.
On September 10th, we will be welcoming Duncan Brown, Head of Consulting at the Institute for Employment Studies in as a guest speaker to tackle the subject of Equal Pay.
Duncan’s session ‘Addressing Unequal Pay: Opening Pandora’s Box’ will cover:
- Why has voluntarism failed, why have so few employers carried out equal pay audits?
- What is the new reporting requirement?
- What’s the benefit?
- How to gently open the lid and address unequal pay.
Duncan leads the HR Consultancy work at the Institute for Employment Studies, a leading research charity and think-tank on employment and HR issues. He has more than 25 years’ experience in rewards consulting and research with firms including Aon Hewitt, PricewaterhouseCoopers and Towers Perrin.
Duncan is a leading commentator on HR issues, who has published numerous reports, articles and books – you can check out some of his recent blog posts here. He has participated on Government taskforces concerned with fair pay, pensions and human capital reporting. Duncan advises a number of remuneration committee and is a Council member of the Pensions Policy Institute. Human Resources magazine placed him in its listing of the top five most influential thinkers in UK HR.
By the end of this session you will have insight, ideas and options to begin opening the lid and addressing unequal pay at your organisation.
