BCC: Gender Pay Gap Reporting Needs Careful Introduction

Commenting on the announcement by the Government Equalities Office on gender pay gap reporting, Dr Adam Marshall, Executive Director of Policy at the British Chambers of Commerce (BCC), said:

“While businesses will support the government’s ambition to close the gender pay gap, they will be cautious about the introduction of measures that reduce a complex issue to a set of headline statistics.

“We’d ideally like to see pay gap reporting piloted among the largest companies, who can more easily absorb the regulatory burden.

“Gender pay gap figures also need to be put into context - businesses should be able to explain these figures, and the government should publish industry averages so firms can benchmark themselves against companies in their sector.”
