As part of the Mazars’ Thriving through change series, we are delighted to invite you to a breakfast briefing on Tackling the gender pay gap’ which will explore how businesses can prepare for the new gender pay gap reporting requirements.

The introduction of mandatory gender pay gap reporting will be implemented in Ireland in early 2020; this legislation requires employers to calculate and report on their gender pay information annually. There were many lessons learned from the UK experience where mandatory gender pay gap reporting was introduced in 2017. At this breakfast briefing, our experienced team will provide you with an overview of the legislation, explain what is required from businesses to achieve compliance and share practical steps companies should take for gender pay reporting.

 The workshop will cover the following:

  • What is the gender pay gap?
  • Developments in gender pay gap reporting
  • Using your payroll and HR data to detect the gaps
  • Creating a plan to address and close the gaps
  • Determining root causes of pay gaps and prevent future gaps emerging
  • Practical steps companies should take for gender pay gap reporting
  • Advice on communicating your gender pay gap figure with internal and external stakeholders

Who should attend? 

Business Owners, Managing Directors, Chief Financial Officers, HR Managers, HR Directors, Payroll Managers, Finance Managers
