Pay gap among IT executives
IT News |
A new survey has found that men earn on average 20 per cent more than their female counterparts in the IT industry.
In news which may interest people working in IT recruitment, research by headhunting firm Experteer found that male executives in the industry earned 20 per cent more than women.
Some 2,400 people earning at least £50,000 per year in the IT, finance, retail and the public and voluntary sectors were polled and the study found the only industry with a larger pay gap than IT was consultancy.
Torsten Muth, managing director of Experteer, said organisations need to create "a fair work environment for both men and women".
He added: "Despite the continuous effort by equality campaigners and the government, it is frustrating to see women are still struggling to be treated equally in the workplace."
A recent study by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development found that people with a recognised qualification in their chosen field can earn up to an extra £81,000 throughout their working life, reported Personnel Today.
