Pay Ratios: Just Do It
Our latest report addresses the case for publishing pay ratios between the top and the middle in a business or organisation.
The High Pay Centre's latest report addresses the case for publishing pay ratios between the top and the middle in a business or organisation. Written by Paul Marsland, Deputy Director of the High Pay Centre, the report argues that publishing pay ratios would reveal not just the gap in pay but the gap in attitudes which inform different pay levels.
Almost everyone says they support greater transparency on pay - pay ratios would help create more transparency, and can be calcuated at zero cost to the employer (the data should be available already). This report details how and why pay ratios should be published.
