The level paying field: UK working women and pay rises | Randstad Infographic

The female workforce represents a huge opportunity for business in the UK, particularly in a time of near-full employment and a skills shortage. But the gender pay gap and women’s perceptions of opportunities available to them may represent a missed opportunity for UK companies to help women advance their careers. Below you will find an infographic from Randstad.

Read Randstad’s latest report on gender and attitudes to the ‘pay rise ask’ and the implications this has for staffing and business growth in the UK.

In the report Mark Bull, CEO of Randstad UK and Middle East, said: “Employers are working hard to promote equal pay and encourage women across all industries but there is still work to be done.”

“The pay gap may be the narrowest it has ever been but it still exists, and it seems women remain more reluctant than their male counterparts to ask for a raise.”

“UK economic growth is at its slowest since 2012 at 2.2 per cent for 2015 and George Osborne has warned of a “dangerous cocktail” of risks affecting the economy for 2016. China’s economic slowdown is predicted to have a global economic effect and continued consumer spending is crucial to keep the country on track.”

“Employers which don’t embrace the benefits women bring are limiting their opportunities and more likely to feel these global economic effects than those who do. By making the most of their employees regardless of gender, working towards pay parity and encouraging women to work equally alongside men they will continue to enjoy growth in uncertain economic times.”
