Our Gender Pay Gap Report for 2019 has been published. It shows the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our company.
Our women’s median hourly rate is 6.14 per cent lower than our men’s hourly rate. We are proud that actions we have taken have reduced this from 15.08 per cent in 2018. Although we recognise we need to continue to work to close the gap still further, we are also pleased that our mean gender pay gap has reduced to 7.45 per cent in 2019 (compared with 10.9 per cent in 2018). Our median gender pay gap of 6.14 per cent is also lower than that the 17.8 per cent rate for all employees in the UK as recorded by the Office of National Statistics (ONS).
We are taking forward a number of initiatives to reduce our gender pay gap further, through our learning and development and recruitment and selection policies.
