- We need to find more evidence to support our campaign in the following areas:
- Using public YouGov data (and potentially data from Alan Furley) to find out how much inconsistency exists between salaries for those with similar experience or in similar roles.
- Ask HR managers why they don't already post salary information on job ads.
- Positive effects of showing salary info for employers, i.e. increase in job applications.
- Negative effects of not showing salary info for employers and employees, i.e. waste of time or inefficiencies.
- Data on the difference between salary expectations and starting salaries.
- Split these out by gender, sexuality, ethnicity etc.
- Find out what % of job ads show salary info at present (potentially Alan Furley)
- We want to collate existing research so that we can:
- Publish links to existing research on our website and use it in content.
- See gaps in the evidence that need to be filled and see if we can conduct our own research or commission some.
- Write and publish a report to generate more noise about the topic and use in our negotiations with employers to change their behaviour.
- Potentially summarise info from research in a poster or infographic.
HR Magazine - Disclosing salaries in job adverts could tackle gender pay gap
Employers who advertise salary details in job adverts will help to tackle the gender pay gap, according to the Young Women's Trust. Disclosing how much a potential applicant should make in the advertised role would lessen their chances of being under-paid or taken for granted.
