Check out Syndio’s one-stop solution for pay gap reporting in 28 jurisdictions worldwide — request global gender pay gap reports in a single click.

On March 30, 2023, the EU Parliament passed a new Directive that requires public gender pay gap reporting. This is on top of existing global pay gap reporting obligations in Europe, the U.S., and elsewhere around the globe. Navigating through the maze of reporting regulations around the world can be challenging and time-consuming, especially as requirements differ between jurisdictions and legislation continues to evolve. 

To help you keep up with all of these different reporting requirements, Syndio offers a one-stop solution for global pay gap reporting — now spanning 28 jurisdictions worldwide. With its comprehensive coverage, Syndio’s Global Pay Reports provides an efficient solution to help reduce compliance risks and ensure accurate report filings for every market your organization engages in. Syndio also provides communications advice so that you can communicate with confidence. 


Bringing global pay gap reporting into focus

Nearly 30 jurisdictions around the globe, including the UK, Israel, Japan, France and Germany, already require companies to report on their gender pay gaps. The trend towards pay gap reporting is only accelerating. With the recent passage of the EU Directive for Equal Pay and Transparency, the number of pay reporting obligations will soar to nearly 45 jurisdictions. Common requirements include:

  • Employers are responsible for providing accurate data on salary differences between male and female employees. 
  • Organizations must regularly review their pay gap policies to ensure compliance with all applicable laws. 
  • Depending on the jurisdiction, employers may be required to publish their pay gap data publicly or provide it directly to government authorities. 
  • Penalties for non-compliance with pay gap reporting requirements vary from country to country but can include fines and other disciplinary action.

It is imperative for companies to comply with these regulations and take steps to address any disparities in pay within their organizations. As the scale tips in favor of applying a global standard to pay equity rather than complying piecemeal only for employees covered by the patchwork of pay transparency laws, leading multinational companies are shifting to a consistent, global approach to pay analyses to ensure that their global workforce is paid fairly and equitably. 

A high-stakes maze of requirements

For companies with a global workforce, pay gap reporting can feel complicated and uncoordinated due to complexities like the different approaches to pay equity, data privacy, a web of diverse reporting requirements, and differences in employee thresholds and deadlines. However, it is important to tackle these challenges head-on, as non-compliance can result in serious consequences, not only in potential fines or disciplinary action, but also in damage to your employer brand reputation with employees, job seekers, consumers, and investors.
