star this property answer text <p>Government established <em>Think, Act, Report </em>in 2011 to provide a simple, step by step framework for companies to build gender equality into their business planning, particularly in relation to recruitment, retention, promotion and pay. Now over 280 businesses, collectively employing well over 2.5 million employees are signed up, providing a powerful community of best practice who are leading the way on gender equality in the workplace. To further champion gender equality in the workplace, Government set up the Women’s Business Council in 2012, which is delivering a wide range of programmes to tackle discrimination and drive culture change through industry-led solutions to support the advancement of women. Staff representatives play a vital role in supporting their colleagues to address unacceptable attitudes and practices.

Based on the Office for National Statistics’ Interdepartmental Business Register it was estimated that around 8,000 private sector and 1,200 public sector employers would be in scope of the regulations.</p><p>We have been working with employers to ensure that our list reflects the changes since that assessment was made. The nature of business means that this number has changed and it will continue to do so. Employers change in size, often as a result of mergers and restructuring. Many businesses also have a number of subsidiaries, some of which may be in scope. We work closely with employers to ascertain who is required to report in light of this.</p><p>Over 1,000 employers have already reported and more employers report every day. The most up to date picture of employers that have already reported can be seen on the Government viewing service:</p><p><a href="https://gender-pay-gap.service.gov.uk/Viewing/search-results" target="_blank">https://gender-pay-gap.service.gov.uk/Viewing/search-results</a></p>
