Simonne says....mind the pay gap

Women in the UK earn on average 21% less than men according to European Commission figures published yesterday. That’s one of the highest pay gaps in Europe – Italy is the lowest at 4.4% and Estonia the highest at over 30%!

Do employers place higher value on the type of work men do?
Or do women under-estimate their own earnings capability?

Despite being highly talented, as women we often shy away from asking for what we’re really worth. So make sure you don’t set your benchmark too low. If you want to check out whether you have under-earner tendencies, read our 2nd law of Sheconomics: ‘Go beyond beliefs’.
