Fast-Track Gender Pay Gap Audit and Consultancy

Gender Pay Gap Legislation Compliance, Reports and Support to Achieve Progress

With the third year of gender pay gap reporting currently underway, the need for companies to continue to differentiate their narratives and action plans from competitors is at the forefront of agendas. Gender pay analytics can be complicated and time consuming, but they don’t need to be. We believe that
gender pay gap reporting can be both a great opportunity to investigate the equalities picture in your workplace and a space through which we can improve communication with our employees.

If simplifying your gender pay analysis, guaranteeing your data validity and putting together a comprehensive report and narrative are a priority in your organisation, join Gapsquare & GenAnalytics for this unique package,  meeting your UK gender pay gap analytics, reporting and consultancy needs.

Almost 12,000 companies in the UK, who employ more than 250 staff, must publish their gender pay gap figures on an annual basis i.e. the difference between male and female earnings across the organisation.

With the third year of gender pay gap reporting currently underway, the need for companies to continue to differentiate their narratives and action plans from competitors is at the forefront of C-Suite agendas.

GenAnalytics launches new gender pay gap software

GenAnalytics Ltd Announces Launch of New Gender Pay Gap Analytical Software

GenAnalytics Ltd, a data insights and analytics consultancy, today announced the launch of their latest software tool designed to help companies gain a competitive edge from gender pay gap reporting.

Almost 12,000 companies in the UK, who employ more than 250 staff, must publish their gender pay gap figures on an annual basis i.e. the difference between male and female earnings across the organisation. Analysis shows that almost 8 out of 10 businesses still pay men more, with female employees earning up to 26% less in the finance sector and 24% less in construction compared to males.

Jane Gotts, Director, GenAnalytics said “Our vision is to deliver greater insight and information to our clients around diversity and inclusion. Gender pay gap analysis and employee analytics are core to our business. This new tool will enable us to better support clients using a technology platform that allows faster and more comprehensive analysis of gender pay data and allows us to identify key areas of action and risk linked to gender pay gap performance. We believe this will help companies close their gender pay gap over time.”

Andy McGoldrick, Technology Director, Incremental Group added, “Incremental Group is committed to driving greater diversity and inclusion within the technology sector whether this is through our various STEM initiatives or our strong internal gender split. Through our work with GenAnalytics we are helping to support better gender diversity and inclusion in the wider sector, all powered through technology and data.”

Claire Partridge, Innovation Specialist at Scottish Enterprise, said: “This new product will drive greater equality and diversity in the workforce. We’re pleased to have supported GenAnalytics, both in an advisory capacity through our innovation support service and with a ‘By Design’ grant. We know that having more of a gender balance drives company performance. By enabling businesses to better understand their gender pay gap we hope that Scotland can lead the way in workplace inclusivity.”

engAGE Conference – extracts from the Minister for Older People and Equalities, The Scottish Government, Keynote Address

The following text is an extract of the keynote address delivered by Christina McElvie MSP, Minister for Older People and Equalities, The Scottish Government, at EngAGE – The Festival of Ageing Conference, organised by GenAnalytics and The Herald on 23 May, 2019 at Glasgow Caledonian University in association with NTT Data UK.

“Population ageing is a fact and we know it is happening at a faster rate than in the rest of the UK.

But we firstly need to recognise that ageing is something to be celebrated.

And that means we have to change the way we think about ageing.

Life does not stop when you hit 50.

Life is not an inevitable, miserable decline.

So I’d like to talk about the recently published “A Fairer Scotland for Older People – A Framework for Action”.

We were told that the main priorities that people had as they got older were: remaining a valued part of the community, fair access to public services including health and social care, housing and transport, arts and culture, as well as financial security.

Recognising that a diverse workforce demands diverse job opportunities. And ensuring the no-one misses out. This, couple with the effect of successive raises in the state pension age has an impact.

It means that recruiting and retaining older workers in the labour market and work place for longer, is increasingly important to Scotland’s economic growth.

Offering flexible working or facilitated phased retirement is an important inclusive employment practice. And there is good reason to do it.

Flexible and agile working policies have been found to raise loyalty, motivation and business productivity as workers experience an improved work-life balance.

But how will we keep people working as they age?

We have our £750,000 Workplace Equality Fund. This is funding for employers and their business partners. And that fund has been expanded for 2019 which will enable them to address the needs of older workers, including those who provide care support, women transitioning through the menopause, and efforts to support employers to tackle social isolation and loneliness.

Women face specific barriers to entering, re-entering and progressing within the workplace. And the gender pay gap widens with age.

So we have a range of initiatives to help women stay in work . These  strategies include: A Fairer Scotland for Women, the Gender Pay Gap Action Plan and the Women Returners Programme.

So it is clear that the Scottish Government is undertaking a number of positive initiatives to support older workers and workers of pensionable age.

We must be considerate of a wider inter-generational workforce, and we must bring forward more flexible measures to better suit older workers.

And we must remind ourselves that our people, are every organisations biggest assets.

Ageing is everyone’s business.”

engAGE Conference

engAGE Conference – Scotland’s Festival of Ageing

Yesterday over 170 people from all sectors of Scotland’s economy came together at Glasgow Caledonian University to change the narrative around ageing in our country. GenAnalytics partnered with The Herald to organise this festival of ageing as we believe this is a significantly important conversation we need to have if we are to achieve our ambitions for inclusive economic growth.

An ageing population creates opportunities! We know there are challenges that we need to discuss openly and overcome but how do we make sure we are harnessing the skills and talents of all of our citizens? This is what engAGE is all about. We were delighted to have support from the Scottish Government to organise the event and welcomed the Minister for Older People and Equalities Christina McElvie MSP who delivered the keynote address. You can hear what the Minister had to say about the Scottish Government’s commitment to changing attitudes around ageing and supporting older people here in this short video. More content will be uploaded over the next few days.

Scotland’s Diversity Conference 2019

We held our third Diversity Conference in partnership with The Herald yesterday in Glasgow. It was another inspiring day with many organisations talking about the progress that has been achieved but also some challenging conversations about the issues that many individuals across our workplaces still face. You can find out more about the event from our video.

Scotland’s Diversity Conference – Driving Forward

In just under two weeks time we will host Scotland’s third diversity conference with our partners at The Herald. We’ll be hearing from and engaging with speakers from all sectors of the economy and from all backgrounds. Everyone has a story to tell and a message that emphasises that diversity is not an add on – that diversity is vital to economic growth. We can’t be complacent on diversity or pause for a moment thinking that we’ve made enough progress. Diversity needs to stay on the business agenda.

Diversity in the Construction Supply Chain

GenAnalytics has recently completed a significant project in partnership with City Building to explore opportunities for diversity and inclusion in their supply chain. The report – funded by the Scottish Government through the workplace equality fund – sought to understand the barriers to diversity and inclusion activities and the opportunities to share best practice across City Building’s supply chain. We engaged directly with businesses and created a diversity toolkit to support the supply chain to develop their diversity and inclusion strategy.

Making Scotland the most age friendly society in Europe

We are delighted to announce the launch of our brand new event in partnership with The Herald – EngAGE. Scotland has a growing older population. We face big challenges and big decisions ahead on affordability of an ageing population, of the type of society we want to see for our older people. But ageing is too often seen as a negative. We want to change the narrative around ageing and talk about the positive opportunities for our economy and our society. With nearly five generations in the workplace how can we maximise the opportunities of an ageing workforce rather than talking it down? That’s what our EngAGE conference is about. With support from The Scottish Government, Glasgow Caledonian University and NTT Data our conference will set the ambition of making Scotland’s the most age friendly economy in Europe. We hope you will join us in this ambition.
