All progress on closing the gender pay gap in hospitality, travel and leisure (HTL) should be applauded. But with just a 0.4% annual fall in the average gap across HTL overall, it could take the best part of another 20 years before we reach parity. We’ll lose a wealth of great talent and performance will suffer if we wait that long.
Drawing on a WiH2020 (Women in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure 2020) survey of HTL businesses with a total workforce of 120,000 people and in-depth analysis of the second round of gender pay gap reporting within the industry, we look at what the front-runners are doing to move the dial and how organisations can clear the barriers holding women back.
