This report is designed to shed some fresh insight into the views and opinions that the next generation have regarding the gender pay gap and what impact they believe it will have on their careers. The report was commissioned to understand the impact that the gender pay gap and the reporting of statistics has had on the attitudes of the next generation of workers.
For the research statistics, Young Enterprise polled 200 young people who took part in the charity’s Company Programme, which is supported by HSBC UK. The Company programme enables participants to experience what it’s like to set up and run a student company. Running throughout the academic year, students make all the decisions about their enterprise, from deciding on the name of the product to creating a business plan, managing the student company finances and selling products to the public at trade fairs.
