Gender Pay Gap

Managing your potential risk exposure, understanding root causes and developing your long term strategy for a more diverse, thriving workforce

What We Do

As well as helping organisations to interpret analyse and understand the Gender Pay Gap regulations, we move beyond the Gender Pay Gap calculations to understand the causes of high Gender Pay Gaps, crucial for developing a strategy for tackling an organisation’s Gender Pay Gap long term.

Mercer is the only expert in Gender Pay Gap that deploys a multidisciplinary approach of reward, talent management, analytics, diversity and inclusion to take a 360 degree approach to reviewing the root causes of your Gender Pay Gap.

For a refresher on the regulations see the Reporting Guide.

Facts, Data, Insights: Analyzing the 'Unquantifiable'

Mercer has more than 80 years of experience understanding what drives employees and translating that knowledge into results. You won’t find data like ours anywhere else. Our benchmark database is the best in the business for evaluating and creating competitive compensation offerings.

As unique as each person’s career is, we can make your rewards structure easier and more efficient with solutions like job levelling across your organization and the world, job architectures that help your employees build careers, and dynamic strategies that direct all of your rewards decisions.

Mercer’s Point of View

The Gender Pay Gap is only partly about pay, but largely about the workforce profile. Understanding the wider workforce dynamics and occupational segregation issue is integral to not just reducing the Gender Pay Gap but building a thriving organisation. Higher levels of diversity in organisations are associated with greater business performance and innovation.
