How we are reducing the Gender Pay Gap to date

There are a number of initiatives that have successfully helped us to reduce the gender pay gap and improve gender balance by encouraging and better supporting all employees in developing their careers including:

  • Specialised software which removes any gender bias from job profiles - An Post identified and removed gender bias from 37 job profiles during 2020.

  • A new interviewing skills programme available to all employees to support them when preparing for interviews.

  • Commitment to gender balanced shortlists for our management positions and reporting on this to our Management Board.

The most recent official figures available (2019) show the Gender Pay Gap at 20% globally, 17.9% in the United Kingdom, 16% in the European Union and 13.9% in Ireland.
