Gender pay gap action plan

This plan was developed as part of our commitment to pay equity. It is supported by data analysis.

Oranga Tamariki has been working diligently to address any gender pay gaps that have been present across our workforce. As an agency, significant progress has been made to address gender pay gap inequities. Gender pay gap analysis completed in November 2021 shows an overall gender pay gap of -2.85%.

The Oranga Tamariki Gender Pay Gap has been significantly impacted in a positive way by the implementation of our new remuneration framework in October 2021. The framework was designed to emphasise equity in our pay practices and remove bias in starting salary and progression decisions. As part of this we have successfully addressed all identified gender pay gaps in like roles, put measures in place to ensure that gaps remain eliminated and achieved a number of actions and milestones.

While we have made good progress, it is important to acknowledge that our mahi continues. There is more work to do to ensure that equity applies at all roles within the organisation, that our systems and policies are relevant and that we continue to remove and eliminate bias within our recruitment and people practices.

Our current Oranga Tamariki pay gap action plan [PDF, 450 KB] outlines the journey we have been on and sets out the mahi we are focused on delivering this year.
