Equal Pay for Equal Work

Most employers want to pay their people fairly and equitably for the work they do. But we now know that unless you do the analysis and have measures in place to ensure equality, difference creeps in; usually along lines of oppression. The largest of which is gender.

There is a lot of information out there about why you should pay equal, but not as much about how to do it, and even less that is relevant to NZ and our laws and legislation. That’s why, at the GenderTick, we’ve developed a suite of resources to help you do the analysis, make a plan that works, and successfully implement it. We run workshops, online tutorials, publish ‘how-to’ guides and we’ll even tailor clinics in your workplace that are specific to your organisation and industry.

If that sounds like more than you have time to do yourself, we also have a database of approved providers who can do the whole process for you. 

In simple terms, these are the eight steps you need to follow in order to get to paying equal:

  1. Establish a team for the project
  2. Define parameters of the analysis
  3. Gather data
  4. Conduct analysis
  5. Develop strategy to get to paying equal
  6. Communicate and get approval
  7. Implement
  8. Celebrate!


At GenderTick we have resources to support you through the whole process, and make sure you succeed. So, there is no excuse not to pay equally.
