Employers currently engaged in preparing their gender pay gap reports may be interested to view the gender pay gap data uploaded onto the government website so far – at the time of writing, twelve employers have done so. Only the six required metrics are displayed along with the name of the director who has signed off the information, and it is possible to display the data (and download it onto an excel spreadsheet) filtered by sector, making comparison easy.

There is no facility to display voluntary narratives alongside the figures, but employers can upload a link to their full gender pay gap report on their website (and seven of those uploaded have chosen to do so, with some full reports including additional adjusted data to illustrate how certain factors have skewed their overall figure). The website can be found here.
