Exposing pay, what are you so afraid of ?
Date(s) - 22nd November 2023

Kings College London
The London HR Connection invites you to our next panel-led discussion when we will be debating the thorny issue of pay transparency. This topical and highly timely event is kindly sponsored by the UK’s largest independent pay and reward consultancy, Innecto, and hosted by Kings College, London
Already in 2023, we have seen the European Parliament approve the EU Pay Transparency Directive and the UK Government publish a guidance paper for employers wishing to analyse and report on their ethnicity pay. The growing trend from legislative governments across the globe is to encourage employers, and in some cases make a statutory requirement, to be transparent on how pay is set, published and monitored.
The EU Directive is a significant milestone on the pay transparency journey. Even for employers without EU-based operations, the changes in legislation will raise expectations from employees, candidates and suppliers on the level of pay transparency you offer. But it’s not only legislation that’s pushing the pay transparency agenda, there are societal pressures too, particularly from younger employees who are far more open to the idea of sharing pay information than their older peers.
What does this mean for you as an employer?
The scale of the impact on your business will be down to how you set, manage, and make decisions on pay right now and how confident you are in your journey to establishing full transparency and compliance. Many organisations want to be more transparent but are worried about the implications it has on the business. What is it exactly that stops us from being more open about pay?
Our expert panel will discuss the challenges facing businesses to become more transparent, the impact of not being transparent as well as aspects you can consider addressing now, in order to help your organisation manage its pay transparency journey. The panel will include:
