The study also found the government is increasingly scrutinising the pay gap between boardroom and employees, as institutional shareholders and trade unions demand companies reveal the pay gap ratio.

The pressure is definitely on for companies to become more transparent when it comes to paying their top executive and non-executive directors.’
