Roscommon County Council recently published its Gender Pay Gap Report for 2022. The gender pay gap is the difference in the average hourly wage of men and women across a workforce. Employers with more than 250 employees in Ireland are now required to publish their gender pay gap data.
The 2022 report shows a Gender Pay Gap of -4.11 per cent mean and -9.47 per cent median. Publishing its gender pay gap data helps the local authority to reinforce its focus on supporting an open and inclusive workplace that is Roscommon County Council.
A statement from the local authority read: “Roscommon County Council is a place where all employees have the same opportunities for recognition and career development and are treated fairly and equitably at work. We continue to be committed to addressing workplace barriers to equality and creating an open and inclusive workplace community.
“Many equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives and supports are already in place, and Roscommon County Council will continue to work in this area. Further information on the Council’s Gender Pay Gap report is available on roscommoncoco.ie/en/download-it/corporate-affairs1/”.
The local authority sector, the Council said, gives people the opportunity to play a key role in the positive development of their county and community.
“As an employer, Roscommon County Council is committed to providing a positive and supportive environment for employees.
“Roscommon County Council offers flexible and family-friendly arrangements, blended working, and great career progression and education opportunities” the statement concluded.
