The average gender pay gap of all firms that reported in the past financial year is 10.4% – the same as the average in 2019-20. Covid has had a disproportionate impact on women, who have been more likely to lose work and earnings during the pandemic. Of the companies that reported by 5 October, 7,572 had a pay gap that favoured men, 1,286 had a pay gap favouring women and 770 reported no pay gap. The BBC looked at a company’s median pay gap – that is, the difference in pay between the middle-ranking woman and the middle-ranking man.
