Employment Law Focus – Upcoming event Autumn 2018

Pay Equality: a brave new world.
Claims, risks, strategies and solutions

Have you calculated your GPG and want to reduce it?

Are you already addressing your GPG but want more ideas or are you likely to be caught by 2019 reporting requirements and want to get prepared? 

Do you know your organisation needs to do more to attract and retain the skills it needs?

Whatever stage you’re at our event is for you.

Unless you’ve been living on Mars in recent times you can’t fail to have noticed how significantly the profile of Equal Pay and Gender Pay has risen in the press, in organisations and in society over the last 12-18 months.   Recent Gender Pay Gap (GPG) Reporting data has revealed that 78% of firms pay men more than women on average and the ONS maintains the UK has a median GPG of 18.5%.

With Equal Pay claims rising significantly (a 233% increase in the last year), it has become vital for business and HR leaders (and not just your Reward specialist) to have a firm understanding of pay equality, to appreciate its complexities and to be able to build strategies to start addressing pay inequalities and defend pay decisions.  The business case for doing so is clear; employers offering an inclusive environment for a diverse mix of employees stand to outperform their competition through greater growth and innovation.  And who doesn’t want that for their business?

Our Pay Equality event will give you:

  • A firm understanding of this complex subject, including Equal Pay Audits, Job Evaluation, key areas of legal risk, defending pay claims, GPG reporting and Unconscious Bias
  • The data and statistics to help you build your business case for taking action on Pay Equality and win the argument
  • Strategies and solutions (quick wins and long term approaches) to help reduce you’re your GPG and your Equal Pay risks – from technical Pay & Reward to gender-neutralising tactics for your talent pipeline
  • You will take away some ‘top tips’ and learnings from our experts in this field
  • The opportunity to attend a workshop in a key subject area during the day.  Choose from the following;
    • ‘Unconscious Bias as a driver for change. Building the business case in your organisation’;
    • ‘Fall back in love with job evaluation! How to choose the right scheme and what it can do for you’;
    • ‘Diversity in Business – how to take actions forward in your workplace.’
  • To benefit from a surgery with our panel of Equality experts
  • The opportunity for networking and discussion with other delegates and panel members
