NOW IT’S EASIER
TO PROVE HOW
FAIR YOU ARE

NEW! THE YWCA
EQUAL PAY COMPACT

 

compact-logo-trThe YWCA Equal Pay Best Practice Compact has been created to provide an entry-level platform for businesses who have started their equal pay journey, but may not feel ready to enter the full Awards.
Does this apply to your organisation?

 

The Compact is an excellent way of publicly endorsing your commitment to equal pay and gender diversity. It can be used to promote your business as an employer of choice on your websites, via social responsibility platforms, recruitment channels or in other awards entries.

Organisations who qualify for the Compact will be proudly announced at the YWCA Equal Pay Awards ceremony.

IMPLEMENT

These could be gender neutral graduate programmes, flexible workplace policies or good maternity packages. Do you have a female talent pipeline and leadership targets?
