Tuesday 21 January 2014

Room 3.1, Queen Mary University of London,

Speakers include:

How much more is your boss worth than you? Pay ratios within companies reflect important but intangible principles of fairness, responsibility and solidarity.

As the pay ratio between Britain’s top executives and the rest of the workforce grows ever larger, we are holding a debate about the impact of large pay gaps on business performance.

Large pay discrepancies within companies can undermine employee morale and engagement with a detrimental effect on the performance of the workforce and ultimately, the business. The High Pay Centre in collaboration with the Centre for Equality and Diversity at Queen Mary, University of London, are launching a new report on pay ratios and how they affect employee engagement and productivity.

The launch event will take place at Queen Mary, University of London, Lincoln's Inn Fields, on the 21st of January. The event will begin at 5:30pm and end at 7:00pm. Drinks and nibbles will be provided.

The event will include a brief presentation of our research, followed by a more general discussion on pay ratios with contributions from all the panellists and questions from the floor.

This event is free of charge and open to all but places are strictly limited. If you are interested in attending, please email

Map and directions are available here.
