The Impact of Hybrid Working on The Gender Pay Gap In Technology
3 September 2021
As we’re all starting to make our way back into the office after the summer, I’m hearing companies every day making announcements about their future work model and how much ‘remote’ or ‘working from home’ will be allowed going forward.
Some companies seem to be flexibly flexible whereas others are most definitely not.
Which is exactly what I predicted back in June when I started to organise my Executive Round Table on The Impact of Hybrid Working on The Gender Pay Gap In Technology.
With more of us working from home, it’s going to be challenging to maintain visibility at work.
Maybe challenging isn’t the right word, but as individuals, we’ll need to be more proactive at HOW we manage our presence in the office so that we stay visible and front of mind when it comes to interesting projects that lead to progression.
And as HR leaders we need to be more thoughtful on how we ensure there’s equal opportunity for visibility and that promotions don’t become the exclusive right of those who decide to work in the office rather than work from home.
That’s exactly why I’m bringing together a small group of HR leaders from other technology companies, including Sky, Microsoft and Sage to share insights, experiences and learnings on The Impact of Hybrid Working On The Gender Pay Gap.

From promotions to pay cheques, latest figures reveal men are still out-earning women at work in the technology sector.
