2018 - Mind the reward gap!

22 November 2018



The ECC Annual Conference 2018: Mind the Reward Gap! was held on 22 November.

Attended by over 70 delegates from 40 member organisations across the UK plus representatives of partner organisations, the conference focused on challenges and solutions in relation to the gender pay gap, and explored the growing interest in other pay and reward gaps such as race and disability.

Our keynote speakers shared insights to help HR professionals tackle those challenges, and we ran three practical workshops exploring key issues:

  • Pay risks and reducing the gender pay gap

  • Streamlining role analysis: avoiding the pitfalls

  • Unconscious bias and reward decisions

All the speakers’ presentations are available below.

We have uploaded short video interviews with conference speakers to below, so you can hear the key points first hand.
