ACI Reportgender salary gapjob satisfactiontravel industry The 2017 ‘Salary & Employment Trends Report’ by ACI HR Solutions released this week confirms that the disparity in the salaries men and women earn across the Asia-Pacific’s travel, tourism, hospitality and lifestyle industry sectors is real, not imagined!In fact, the report points to a widening of the gender salary gap, and says that despite female executives being seen to be making inroads toward professional equality, their male counterparts continue to earn substantially more – the report’s male respondents’ earnings were 55% higher than those of the report’s female respondents. Disappointingly, that 55% figure is augmented because fewer women than men hold senior positions in travel, tourism and hospitality as they move into older age groups.“Surprisingly, given the amount of discussion and coverage professional equality receives, and some of our clients having wonderful initiatives implemented, not only have we not seen the gap narrow, but over the past three years we have actually seen it widen from 48% in 2015 to 55% in 2016,” said ACI founder & CEO Andrew Chan.“While the gap appears large, drilled down the 55% isn’t a position vs position gap – the 55% represented our overall survey, which actually highlights the disparity in the number of women holding senior positions.“The graph that best describes this in the report is the one that indicates the age of respondents by gender showing far less female respondents as the age group increases.“This ultimately shows us, irrespective of the salary component, there are far less females holding senior positions across these industry sectors in roles such as general managers and CEOs.”Read the full report here.
