Equal Pay Survey

UNITE campaigns for Equal Pay. The fact that women still get paid (on average) far less for work of equal value is a disgrace. The divisions sown in the workforce by discrimination help keep everyone’s wages down, so this is a practical, as well as moral, issue for everyone.
As part of our campaign, we pressure companies to carry out Equal Pay Reviews, as well as pressuring the government to make them compulsory.
Intellect is the trade body and lobby group for IT and electronics companies. As part of Intellect’s Women in IT programme, they have issued a survey looking at equal pay and the implications of equal pay audits on companies.
The survey looks at the ‘perceptions’ rather than the ‘reality’ of equal pay and whether women feel:
– they are being paid fairly in that technology industry compared to their male colleagues
– they are appreciated by their company
– pay issues impacts their loyalty to the company they work for
– that equal pay audits would create a better perception

The results will help understand the perceptions of female employees within the IT industry today.
Women are encouraged to take part in this online survey which should take no more than five minutes.
