Temple University Singapore presents “The Gender Earnings Gap and Corporate Pay Systems: Causes and Potential Remedies”

Professor Deckop will explore the issues of the male-female earnings gap and what corporations might do about it.  He’ll begin the discussion with data on the earning gap in South Asia and worldwide and then proceed to evaluate the range of possible explanations for the earning gap.  From there he’ll discuss possible initiatives that corporations can take to investigate the earning gap in their organizations and provide remedies where deemed appropriate.  Specifically, he’ll focus on the roles of job evaluations and market benchmarking.  These practices can perpetuate an earning gap in corporation or serve as a means to eliminate it.
 
The seminar will take place on August 20, 2014 at 7 pm.
 
Professor John Deckop teaches as part of Temple University Singapore’s Masters of Human Resource Management (MSHRM) program.
