Snapshot April 2018
We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing individual employee’s data.
We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website. We will do this within one calendar year of 5 April each year.
Our employee demographic is consistent with the rest our sector which has been historically male dominated; our gender split is 88:12 male to female.
What does the data tell us?
We are pleased that our pay strategy continues to mean we have a small gender pay gap, which since 2017 has reduced further to 0.41% which we believe reflects that men and women are paid equal amounts for doing equivalent jobs across our business. This positively compares to the UK average of 18.1%. We are committed to building a diverse workplace that gives equal opportunities to all employees.
What does the future look like?
In continuing our support for reducing the gender pay gap, we will look to increase gender diversity within our company, identifying ways of making our sector look more attractive to women by analysing progression routes.
This information is correct as at the time of publishing.
