Can Pay Gap Analysis be the driver of equal opportunities in the workplace?

The unjustified pay gap between men and women is still present, and it seems that it will not go away without some focused efforts. Although countless studies and reports show that the gap is there, many still do not believe it impacts their own organisation. The EU Commission is increasingly communicating that the issue must be addressed. Some countries have begun the journey and have insights to share. Data analysis to determine the gap and structured implementation of measures to close the gap is increasingly used.

Dr Margrét Vilborg Bjarnadóttir will participate in this important event on the 29 June.

The World Economic Forum estimates that it will take over 200 years to close the gender pay gap. No one should have the patience to wait that long. How can we accelerate change? The answer may lay in data and models with a good dose of transparency.

The journey starts with gathering the data and understanding the pay structure. Then companies move on to identifying areas for improvement and eliminating unexplained demographic pay gaps through corrective action—in other words, ensuring equal pay for equal work.

Addressing Demographic Pay Gaps with Data-driven Solutions | guest feature for insideBIGDATA

Dr. Margret Bjarnadottir (@mvilborg2) from @payanalytics recently wrote a guest feature for @insideBigData about addressing demographic #PayGaps with Data-driven Solutions.

Demographic pay gaps, including the gender pay gap, are the result of more complex factors than just a desire to minimize payroll expenses.

And, as multiple executives have found out, good intentions and “mindfulness” are not enough to eliminate the gaps.

Why Companies' Attempts to Close the Gender Pay Gap Often Fail

PayAnalytics co-founders David Anderson and Margrét V. Bjarnadóttir wrote an article together with Cristian Dezso and David Gaddis Ross for Harvard Business Review about closing the gender pay gap.

Gender pay equity has become a big point of contention at many companies. Not only have politicians and other public figures spoken out against the gender pay gap, but there has also been a rising tide of high profile lawsuits targeting major employers, most notably in the U.S., with all the bad publicity and financial liability they entail.
