Just over one in 10 (12%) of organisations proactively measure their gender pensions gap, according to research by Employee Benefits.
The Employee Benefits Pensions research 2020, which surveyed 94 pension strategy decision-makers, found that while many organisations are proactively working towards closing the much-publicised gender pay gap, the proportion that say they are actively measuring their gender pensions gap is four percentage points lower than the 16% of respondents that did so in 2019.
This year, almost one-fifth (18%) of respondents say they are planning on looking at this, which still leaves the majority (70%) that are not planning to measure the gender pensions gap for the foreseeable future.
