Gender pay gap: employers' action and understanding

This research looks at how employers understand the gender pay gap and what actions they are taking to close it.



The government’s gender pay gap (GPG) transparency regulations began in April 2017. The GPG measures the differences in hourly earnings and employment by gender.

This research provides evidence on large employers’ understanding of the GPG, the action they are taking to close it, and their response to the new transparency regulations.
