Expanding companies shouldn’t wait until they hit the reporting threshold to start thinking about their gender pay gap, argues Hephzi Pemberton


Fixing the gender pay gap requires a huge amount of work for every business, not only by way of a cultural shift, but a practical overhaul in the make-up of senior executive leadership teams. The issue that huge corporates and institutions have to contend with, is the fact that size equates to sluggishness. This isn’t necessarily a reflection of the ethos of the company, or their determination to instil change, it’s the sheer amount of bureaucracy and long-entrenched work cultures, that slow this intention down drastically.
