The gender pay gap calculator

The Workplace Gender Equality Agency (‘the Agency’) has relaunched one of its most utilised resources: the gender pay gap calculator. The Agency has developed the gender pay gap calculator to assist employers to identify and analyse the causes of gender pay gaps within their own organisation. It is important for all organisations – even those who don’t believe they have gender pay gaps – to look at your data. You may be surprised by the results. 

Analysing your own organisation’s gender pay gaps is a critical step in taking action to address pay equity. An organisation cannot effectively begin this journey without looking at the data and understanding what exactly is driving any gender pay gaps.

What does the calculator do?

The specific purpose of the calculator is to identify your organisation’s gender pay gaps. The calculator will assist you in identify:

  • gender representation gaps across the entire organisation, and by key organisational variables
  • actual gender pay differentials by level, and key organisational variables
  • relative gender pay gaps by level, and key organisational variables

The Agency’s gender pay gap calculator allows you to conduct additional analysis by including variables such as performance, tenure, and state location.
