How do you feel about your company's gender pay gap?

How do you feel about your company's gender pay gap?

As more publishers and booksellers release their gender pay gap data, we are keen to hear your thoughts on the figures being revealed.

Do you work at one of the companies which has released its pay gap data? If so, please take a few minutes to complete this short online survey.

The survey will be open until the end of day on Tuesday 3rd April and the results will be published in the 6th April issue of The Bookseller magazine.

So far publishers Bloomsbury, HarperCollins, Pearson and Springer Nature have reported median gender pay gaps in favour of men, ranging from 10.4% to 17.2%.

Publishers Penguin Random House UK and Macmillan have median gender pay gaps in favour of women, along with the Hachette Group  although when breaking out the results for the Hachette UK Ltd legal entity, the median pay gap grows to almost 25% in men's favour.

On Monday, The Bookseller reported that women in publishing have reacted with anger to the broad pay gaps revealed.

A senior woman at Hachette, who preferred to speak anonymously, said at the time: "The data confirms my long-held suspicions about pay and bonuses in publishing, and reflects the institutional sexism in much of the industry. We need to see immediate action addressing these disgraceful numbers. And I speak from a very privileged position. I can only imagine how those less privileged must feel. I trust this is the beginning of real change."

The deadline for companies with over 250 employees to report their data is Thursday 4th April.
