Mind the gender pay gap

New transparency rules show female managers earn £12k less than male colleagues.

Analysis of managers’ salaries conducted by the CMI and XpertHR shows the gender pay gap as calculated under the Government’s new reporting regulations stands at 26.8 per cent, with male managers on average out-earning female peers by £11,606 a year - £3,000 more than previously thought. This includes salary and bonuses, as well as perks such as car allowance and commission.

Too many businesses are like ‘glass pyramids’ with women holding the majority of lower-paid junior roles and far fewer reaching the top. We now see those extra perks of senior management roles are creating a gender pay gap wider than previously understood. The picture is worst at the top, with male CEOs cashing-in bonuses six times larger than female counterparts’.
