All You Need to Know About Gender Parity

Are we any closer to parity in gender pay scales

As part of its commitment to diversity and inclusion, gender equality and corporate transparency, global retail major RB has recently issued reports on gender pay in its top five markets around the globe, including India in the companys first global Gender Pay Report.

Gender parity for women has an economic as well as social impact in a country like India. Achieving gender equality in India would have a larger economic impact there than in any other region in the world-$700 billion of added GDP in 2025-but comprehensive change is needed, said a report by McKinsey in November 2015.

Ranjay Radhakrishnan, Chief Human Resources Officer, commented: “In 2019, we promised to go beyond what was legally required for gender pay reporting. Today, I’m proud to say that we have delivered on that commitment, issuing our first global Gender Pay Report covering our five largest markets and representing nearly 50 percent of our global employees. It is clear that RB needs to better reflect our consumers and the profile of the markets we operate in. We recognise there is more to do to achieve our ambition of increasing the number of women in senior management positions to 40 percent by 2022.”
