Transparency can be a catalyst for action in tackling the ethnicity pay gap

Matthew Fell, CBI Chief UK Policy Director, said:

“Transparency can be a catalyst for action in tackling the ethnicity pay gap, in the same way that it has been so successful for gender.

“Reporting must be done in a way that is supported by both businesses and employees, to recognise the wide range of ethnic groups and legitimate staff concerns about intrusiveness where sample sizes are small.

“Companies want to work with the Government to achieve their goal of becoming more inclusive employers.”
