Organisations reporting their gender pay gap has fallen compared to before the pandemic, according to new research.
The CIPD, the professional body for HR and people development, analysed this year's gender pay gap data for Great Britain, finding the number of organisations reporting their figures is down 11%.
The figures also show that around 65% of companies provide a URL to information on their gender pay gap, suggesting that over a third do not provide any information behind the gender pay figures.
Charles Cotton, senior policy adviser for reward and recognition at the CIPD, said: “It’s disappointing that the number of organisations reporting their gender pay gap has fallen.
“We encourage those who haven’t yet reported to do so as soon as possible, otherwise they risk enforcement action and possible damage to their reputation.
“Evidence suggests that economically, women have been adversely and disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and now is not the time to be taking the foot off the pedal when it comes to equality in the workplace.
