South Dublin County Council has 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 for the Mean Gender Pay Gap shows that on average, females are paid 3% more than males. The Median Gender Pay Gap shows that the median rate of pay for females is 12% higher than the median rate of pay for males.
Publishing our gender pay gap data helps to reinforce our focus on supporting an open and inclusive workplace at South Dublin County Council. The organisation is a place where all employees have the same opportunities for recognition and career development and are treated fairly and equitably at work. The Council will 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 we will continue to work in this area.
Daniel McLoughlin, Chief Executive, South Dublin County Council, said, “I welcome this first report on South Dublin County Council’s Gender Pay Gap as it very positively demonstrates the importance of having a diverse workforce and an inclusive culture for the contribution these make to the organisation in achieving our strategic goals and enhancing problem-solving, collaboration and decision-making.”
