Wicklow County Council has published its Gender Pay Gap Report for 2022. The gender pay gap is the difference in the average hourly wage of men and women across a workforce.
Employers with more than 250 employees in Ireland are now required to publish their gender pay gap data.
The 2022 report shows a Gender Pay Gap of -1.88 %, which shows females are paid 1.88% more than males and the median gender pay gap is -4.62%, which shows the average female is paid 4.62% more than the average male. Further details and statistics are outlined in our report.
Publishing the gender pay gap data helps the Council to reinforce its focus on supporting an open and inclusive workplace. Wicklow County Council is a place where all employees have the same opportunities for recognition and career development and are treated fairly and equitably at work.
The Council continues to be committed to addressing workplace barriers to equality and creating an open and inclusive workplace community. Many equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives and supports are already in place, and we will continue to work in this area.

“People are at the core of our organisation and as a local authority Wicklow continue to strive to promote and sustain an inclusive organisational culture which provides equality of opportunity and where every employee feels valued. We will examine what the gender pay gap figures can tell us about our organisation and this will help inform our action plans. We will work with our colleagues across the sector to share best practice.’’ – Brian Gleeson, Chief Executive, Wicklow County Council
