Pay and employment equity review analysis

To assess the impact of gender on the pay and participation of women, organisations need to analyse quantitative HR and payroll data.

Creating tables and charts showing the following comparisons for men and women can be useful:

  • Distribution of employees by job classification
  • Distribution of employees by grade
  • Average annual full-time equivalent remuneration by job classification
  • Average annual full-time equivalent remuneration by job grade
  • Proportion of employees in bands of hours
  • Percentage of employees in each level
  • Term of employment
  • Percentage of those receiving and not receiving bonuses
  • Composition of full time equivalent annual remuneration
  • Employees in red-circled or market-rated jobs
  • Job size by full time equivalent remuneration
  • Employees by grade by average hourly remuneration by average job size
  • Ratio of hourly pay by occupation
  • Occupation by starting rate.

The suggestions above provide examples of analysis that have been found useful in pay and employment equity reviews, as they reflect factors associated with pay and employment outcomes for women and men. You may find other types of analyses and resources that are relevant to your particular organisation or industry.
