HR is winning the gender pay battle within its own profession, according to CIPD research.
A survey of 2,000 HR professionals shows the gender pay gap at HR director level is almost non-existent.
The Rewards Survey shows a gap of 1.3 per cent in gender HR director pay, compared to a gap of 5.6 per cent last year and 30.2 per cent 10 years ago.
The gap at senior manager level has halved over the past 10 years, although it still stands at 8.2 per cent. This figure though is way below the national average of 18 per cent.
