Equal pay for both men and women is a topic that has been talked about for a very long time. Most organisations are now reviewing the pay gap between men and women to make sure that the balance of pay is correct. We can see from past results published on pay review articles that on average the pay for men has always been higher than women. Recent research shows that the balance is however equalizing giving a fair balance of pay. There has been debates on the news and on other social media regarding the
equal pay gap and what was being done by organisations to make sure that this was not shifting one sided, to have more room for equality and fairness.
Following the debates most companies now operate on a fair basis when it comes to pay, especially for job roles which are similar, however the pay for men and women may be different for many organisations who will not look at this issue. When we look in this subject area on a global scale we can see that in many countries the structure of pay will not change for both men and women this may be subject to the law not being passed for this process of being equal it may also be subject to organisations not agreeing upon the policies of having fair pay and as a result may adopt to their own pay strategies and own policies which may be governed by their pay budget and affordability.
