UKFast reveals gender pay gap of just 0.9%

The firm laid out an action plan to improve its disparities which included establishing a diversity and inclusion team, reviewing flexible working provisions and providing unconscious bias training for hiring managers.

She said: "Gender pay gap reporting is a good move as it has raised awareness and made people more conscious of the issue - that is the first step". The FA said the fact that most of its high-profile coaches were men had a "significant impact" on the figures.

MP Rehman Chishti, who serves as the Conservatives' vice chair, told BBC Radio that the party has a median pay gap of 12.9 per cent in favour of women.

Private companies in the United Kingdom have hours left to report their gender pay gaps as part of a new regulation aimed at showing women exactly how much more their male colleagues are getting paid. This is part of the government's wider strategy to develop the evidence base on what may help to close the gender pay gap.

At Wales' only Premiership football club, Swansea FC there was a 26.4% gap between the pay for men and women.

On average, women with seven to 10 years of experience, for example, ask for about 90 cents on the dollar and are offered slightly more - 93 cents for every dollar a man is offered.

Tonight's deadline was set in a new law introduced a year ago to try to tackle wage differences between men and women carrying out the same job.




Unlike Amazon, however, Apple's statement cites both mean and median statistics and admits that by some measures its female employees are worse off. Female executives are also paid 88% less on average than men in the same roles. But as more and more results have been published we have seen that it is revealing some challenging truths about where the real issues lie in achieving sustainable change.

Many of the UK's largest print companies have revealed their gender pay cap data as the government's deadline looms.

According to the figures women's mean hourly rate is 36% lower than men's. The companies will also have to publish the numbers showing the proportion of women at the top posts, along with the proportion at which the men and women receive their bonuses. Female Facebookers' mean hourly rate is 0.8 per cent lower than men's, while their median hourly rate is 9.9 per cent lower.

Over half (51 per cent) of women who use a credit card are likely to switch their credit card provider, compared to 38 per cent of men.

But the company still had some important differences in how men and women are rewarded.

A spokeswoman said: "As a business, we are encouraging a more gender-balanced workforce at every level by looking at how we recruit, develop and inspire colleagues".

It said it aimed to recruit an increasing number of women in graduate and experienced roles.
