Mixed new on pay and promotion equality
A new survey by the Chartered Management Institute provides some interesting data which, on the whole, confirms that whatever the law may provide, gender equality remains some way off in practice, subject to some notable exceptions. Some of the more interesting results are :-
- Senior male employees pay rose by 2.3% last year whereas senior female employees received a pay rise of on average 2.8 %
- Women often occupy senior roles in Human Resources but not as many proportionately are senior in finance, marketing or IT
- The overall pay gap, in a survey sample of over 34,000 senior employees was found to have widened last year marginally, but still remains significant in that for senior roles a male employee still earns an average of more than £10,000.00 more than a woman.
