According to the ADP Research Institute’s People at Work 2022: A Global Workforce View report, 82% of them feel that the gender pay gap exists and it’s unfair.
The report reveals that although women have been more vocal about the issue, men are not far behind. The report further shows the expectations and hopes for the workplace of the future and the employee attitudes towards the current world of work.
Rahul Goyal, MD, ADP India said, “Employees in India strongly consider factors such as workplace ethics and culture when deciding whether to join or remain with their employer.”
“And they are willing to leave when employers fail to create a diverse workforce and treat them unfairly,” Rahul Goyal added.
Rahul Goyal further added, “The ramifications could go even further, adversely affecting the way a company as a whole, its values, and brand, could be perceived by staff and candidates, as well as customers and shareholders.”
- In India, 78% of workers would look for a new job if an employer didn’t have a gender pay gap policy.
- 85% of young workers between the age of 18 to 24 years feel that there is a lack of diversity and inclusion policies.
- Further, nearly 62% of employees in India accept that their organisation has a gender pay equality policy and they do talk about its importance.
- However, for DEI policies it’s slightly less (58%).
The Report further finding added:
- While half of the workers globally (50%) say their employer has got better at gender pay equality compared to three years ago and think diversity and inclusion have improved.
- More than one in 10 believe there has been a decline (11% for pay equality and 13% for diversity and inclusion).
- However, the Management teams, company owners, and HR departments are cited as the primary drivers of gender pay equality and diversity and inclusion within companies, but in a third of cases (33%) workers say it is left up to employees, and one in seven (15%) say no one is driving it.
