Closing the Gender Pay Gap: Striving for Equal Pay
Welcome to our dedicated page addressing one of the most pressing issues in today's workforce: gender pay inequality. At STB.co.uk, we are committed to championing gender equality and fostering a fair and inclusive workplace for all.
Understanding the Gender Pay Gap: Unveiling the Disparities
The gender pay gap refers to the difference in average earnings between men and women in the workforce. Despite significant advancements in gender equality over the years, this gap persists across industries and countries. Our goal is to shed light on the underlying factors contributing to this disparity and work collectively towards its eradication.
Why Does the Gender Pay Gap Exist?
Numerous complex factors contribute to the gender pay gap, including occupational segregation, biases in hiring and promotion, lack of flexible work options, and societal expectations. These factors often lead to women being concentrated in lower-paying roles and industries, while men dominate higher-paying sectors. We believe it's crucial to challenge these norms and create an environment where everyone has an equal opportunity to thrive.
Our Commitment to Equal Pay: Taking Action
