    James Marsh,HRr; Jennifer Liston-Smith, MFC; Ruth Thomas, CURO; Catherine Manson, Christie's; Sarah Gregory, Baker & McKenzie Recorded: Apr 30 2019 75 mins
    The UK has one of the biggest gender pay gaps in Europe as well as a growing skills shortage. Research shows 92% of people would use gender pay gap information when looking for a job and half of female employees would favour an organisation with a smaller gap (Business in the Community, 2015).

    We now have data from two rounds of Gender Pay Gap reporting and we’ve seen many narratives and action plans exploring the drivers, and solutions.

    In this webinar we’ll be sharing analysis of the latest round of reporting and examining what it tells us about any progress in closing the gap. But it’s not just about the numbers, we’ll also be considering challenges and opportunities of the mandatory narrative and asking what ‘good’ looks like.

    We’ll be discussing what employers are actually doing to close the gap with a focus on addressing the key ‘motherhood’ and ‘good daughter’ penalties.

    Join James Marsh and our panel of employers, thought leaders and gender pay experts for an insightful and lively discussion.

    Jennifer Liston-Smith, Director, Head of Coaching, Consultancy and Thought Leadership at My Family Care and Ruth Thomas, co-founder and Senior Consultant at Curo Compensation will be providing expert insight and a broad perspective on the topic.

    In the competition to attract and retain talent across multiple generations, the best Employee Value Propositions include family-friendly benefits and policies. Inclusion of working parents and carers also plays a part in your overall consumer brand, corporate social responsibility perception as well as measures such as Gender Pay Gap reporting.

    • Nearly 61%* of women would take an organisation’s gender pay gap into consideration when looking for a new job.
    • Flexible working is the top benefit people look for when considering a new role, way beyond any other typical benefits.**
    • Women put parent and carer benefits second only to flexible working when considering a new role**

    With online comparison sites and social media further increasing transparency on employer culture, policies and benefits, prospective and existing employees have never been more aware or had more access to this level of information. And it matters to them!

    In this webinar hosted by James Marsh, we’re delighted to be joined by a strong panel of guests from Barclays, PiPA, Hays, recruiting experts worldwide, and My Family Care / Bright Horizons.

    Technology, demographics, cultural, social and generational changes mean that why and how we work has changed almost beyond recognition in the last decade. There’s now a five generational workplace, fewer of us to do the work, increased care responsibilities and a fundamental shift in how younger generations want to work and how they value the components of work, life and family.

    The pace of that change continues unabated and it demands that we all start thinking in a different way when it comes to the way we work and live, especially when it comes to ‘managing the balance’.

    In this lively, future-gazing webinar, James Marsh will be discussing the trends, challenges and possible solutions with leading global employers and thought leaders. In amongst that panel, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions brings her deep insight and experience of working with leading employers to shape programmes to engage and retain talented parents and carers.
