Workplace equity
is impossible

In the face of widespread economic uncertainty, HR leaders worldwide are struggling with restricted budgets, hiring freezes, and even layoffs. But you're likely finding yourself in a tough spot: Although you have limited resources, you still have pressure to close your pay gap and meet representation goals.

Workplace Equity is possible

Tangible progress starts with workplace equity.

Despite good intentions and widespread investments in building more diverse and equitable organisations, progress is moving at a glacial pace. Women overall still earn less than men. Women's gross hourly earnings are on average 13% below those of men in the European Union.1  In the UK, the gender pay gap among full-time employees in April 2022 was 8.3%.2 And the pressure is on for both UK and European-headquartered companies to not only make progress, but prove it publicly.
