About the tool

Diagram for how the tool works

If you're a company who has to publish your gender pay gap information, and you want to close your pay gap: this tool is for you.

Our user-friendly tool is quick and easy to use, ideal for companies who need to get their reporting done quickly and effectively.

The tool uses your gender pay gap data, along with your answers to a short set of questions, to determine the key factors behind your pay gap.

The tool will produce a personalised report and action plan for your company based on these factors. You can also use the tool without your pay gap data.

If you'd rather choose your own areas of focus, you can do this too.

How do I start?

There are three ways to use the tool, depending on what stage you are at in your pay gap journey.

If you have already reported

You can input your company’s name and the site will import your data from the UK Government’s gender pay gap viewing service.

If you haven’t reported yet

If you’ve got all of your data in place, but just haven’t published it yet, you can manually input your data. If you haven’t calculated your figures yet, you can use our handy calculators, and the site will import this for you.

If you don’t want to input your pay gap data

You can go straight to our initial assessment questions without inputting your pay gap information. If you choose to do this your pay data won't be taken into account in your action plan.
