Apple discloses gender pay gap at UK operations

NEW Pay Equity Day Focuses on Wage Gap in NL

As the April deadline to publish gender pay gap data passed at midnight yesterday, it has now emerged that nearly eight in 10 large United Kingdom companies and public sector bodies pay men more than women.

The UK government recently launched the Gender Pay Gap database, forcing the largest companies to reveal the pay differences between male and female members of staff. For instance, B&Q reports that women's mean hourly rate is 8.8% lower than men's, and the median hourly rate is 2% lower.

Leighton Hospital could struggle to close the gender pay gap due to the number of female nurses they employ, trust bosses have claimed.

The Government Equalities Office, which is overseeing the process along with the Equalities and Human Rights Commission, was unable to say how many companies had been expected to file.

When female employees leave the workforce for one year or more, they make 7% less when they return, and have difficulty getting a promotion compared to an employee who's now working there and seeking the same job, PayScale's new State of the Gender Pay Gap report shows.

The government has mandated that all charities with over 250 employees should report mean and median gender pay gaps, and the deadline to do so passed last night.

Britain's biggest companies have lifted the lid on gender pay gap - with eight out of 10 admitting they pay men more than women.

When asked about the situation within their own organisations, however, the answers changed significantly.

French rail workers begin major strike action over Macron's reform efforts
It comes amid separate action by staff at Air France , rubbish collectors and some energy workers. It is expected to be the biggest wave of industrial unrest since Mr Macron's election last May.

On the flip side, 14% of companies pay women more than men.

Companies who do not provide their figures will face legal action including court orders and fines, but only after they have been given a month's grace to report the figures. While over 10,000 companies published data, approximately 1,500 failed to meet the deadline.

The biggest gap for a well-known United Kingdom company was found at lingerie group Boux Avenue which found that women earned on average 75.7% less than men on a median basis. An analysis of 1,000 British companies by DueDil, a company-information platform in London, showed that just 13 per cent of women held top directorships, creating a "significant gender gap in senior leadership" and in average pay. The pay gap between genders in the United Kingdom and beyond is well-documented and persists, in large part, due to the "motherhood penalty", women's salary negotiating tactics, and employer bias. That's because they are technically considered owners rather than employees.

Across all universities in England, the average gender pay gap is 18.4% - meaning for every £1 men earn per hour, women earn 81.6p. Excluding PPL's CEO from the figures, the mean gender bonus gap drops to 15.4% in favour of men.

"Research for a report I wrote for Next Gen Skills Academy in 2016 had already suggested there was a lack of women in senior and boardroom roles in many United Kingdom games studios". Our focus in recent years has been three-fold: recruitment, training and talent management.

Speaking to PocketGamer.biz, Women in Games Jobs CEO Marie-Claire Isaaman says the results aren't a surprise. "These tend to be during periods of change and transition".

He added that recruiters "have a key role to play to help clients increase diversity and inclusion, address historic and systemic barriers to progression and opportunity for all, and secure more women in senior roles".
