We are now into the first year of reporting on gender pay gaps and female employees and journalists as much as HR professionals and business leaders are awaiting the publications of the required stats and ‘league tables’ with considerable interest.

Based on recent research IES carried out for the Equality and Human Rights Commission, as well as their work with individual employers, Duncan will talk through the evidence on ‘what works’ in reducing gender pay gaps and how you can develop action plans to help reduce the size of your published gaps in future years.
