Description

Join us for this Policy Event on how flexible working can help to close the gender pay gap and improve equality in the workplace.


As we head into the third year of gender pay gap reporting, there is increasing appetite and expectations amongst all stakeholders, including employees, investors and regulators, for organisations to go beyond just reporting the financial figures and start outlining the actions they are taking to narrow the gap.

Getting employers to take steps to improve flexible working will be key in closing the gender pay gap and improving equality in the workplace. The business case for doing so is clear, bringing increased job satisfaction and productivity, as well as creating a more diverse workforce that gives women more opportunities to progress into senior roles. However, CIPD’s latest report, Megatrends: Flexible Working, shows that the number of employees using formal flexible working arrangements has flatlined since 2010. This is despite the right to request flexible working being extended to all employees in 2014.

The CIPD in partnership with the Government Equalities Office is hosting an event looking at the gender pay gap and the role of flexible working. It will be an opportunity to discuss openly your experiences of flexible working in the workplace – the barriers holding employers back as well as the success stories. You will also hear from Claire McCartney, CIPD’s Senior Policy Advisor for Resourcing & Inclusion, discussing CIPD’s latest report on enabling flexible working, and Tara Hutton from the Government Equalities Office to answer your questions about Government policy.
