Communicating Your Gender Pay Gap

AON
This report aims to help companies effectively communicate and disclose their gender wage gap by describing an action plan and demonstrating a real commitment to act. The document lists “traps” to avoid and effective ways to communicate the gender wage gap.

 Things to avoid:

  • Quantity does not mean quality – overly-long narratives might signal insufficient thought.
  • Do not lose focus on the purpose – provide value to the audience, not simply share any output.
  • Help those writing to succeed– responsible team must have sufficient knowledge on the topic.
  • Avoid action-plan cherry-picking – gather inspiration from others but do not duplicate actions.

 

Things to do:

  • Take your time – invest appropriate time to develop a relevant, tailored plan.
  • Think about your audience – consider the needs of internal and external audiences.
  • Be action oriented – defining and implementing an action plan is a priority.
  • Be realistic and transparent – credibility of actions and commitments is paramount.
