Team Eleven Client Partner, Sophie Gibson, comments in today’s Telegraph on how you can stand up to the gender pay gap at work.
Sophie Gibson, founder of marketing firm Team Eleven, advises: “Asking to leave early can sometimes be difficult. But, given that awareness of the pay gap is growing, seize the opportunity to bring it your employers attention. Why not ask your employer for a quiet word.
“Say something like: ‘I am sure that the company does value my time in the same way as my male peers, but I’d like to leave an hour early today to ensure that my time reflects the salary I am paid. This is part of the equal pay day campaign. Should the pay gap be corrected, I’d be only too happy to stay. But unless the company can explain their position on this matter, then I’m sure you would agree it’s only fair.’”
