MP Sarah Champion wants to help Rotherham firms close gender pay gap

It "encourages women to speak to their colleagues and bosses about the need to tackle gender pay gaps", says The Independent, and "advises that they join a trade union and set up a women's network at work". The civil service gender pay gap stands at 12.7 per cent and the public sector as a whole at 19.4 per cent.

Figures vary greatly from company to company, and the gap fluctuates depending on whether mean or median is used to calculate it.

Chloe Chambraud, gender equality director at Business in the Community, said bosses must understand the factors driving their pay gaps and the groups of women who are most affected. This results in women earning on average £1.13 for every £1 men earn. Labour Party MP Stella Creasy recently even started the #PayMeToo movement to see if women are paid at par with the men in their organisations.

Nearly all of the East Anglian companies required to report revealed a pay gap favouring men, with construction group Breheny, audio visual firm Midwich and insurance giant Aviva revealing some of the biggest gaps.

Businesses that have not yet filed their gender pay gap data are scrambling to publish their figures before midnight tonight, the final deadline.

"Shining a light on where women are being held back means employers can begin to take action", a UK Home Office spokesperson said.

This is the message on deadline day for the gender pay gap reporting regulations, with more than 10 of the region's largest employers yet publish their gender pay and bonus gap figures.

A number of household name employers, including Unilever and BT, pay women on average more than men. The firm employs more men than women across the board.

Figures from the retailer show its median pay gap - which takes the middle number from a list of the lowest and highest values - was lower than the national average of 18.4%. Executive ranks are also dominated by men.

The BBC said in January that it would be more transparent about what it pays its correspondents, and offer salaries in narrower bands.

The trust, which runs Leighton Hospital as well as Victoria Infirmary in Northwich and Elmhurst in Winsford, has revealed its female employees earn 25.9% less than men on average.

She added: "What gets measured gets changed - helping to develop more inclusive workplaces and support more women into senior roles". This matches the mean national pay gap pay, and is only 1 per cent better than the median national pay gap.

St Ives subsidiary Clays published its own pay gap data, with a 36.7% median gap and 24% mean.
