gender pay gap statement

From April 2018, all organisations employing more than 250 employees are required to publish their gender pay gap figures to the Government Equalities Office.

what is gender pay gap reporting?

The gender pay gap shows the difference in the average hourly rate of pay between men and women across an organisation, regardless of the nature or level of their work. It highlights the gender difference across all roles.

It is different from an equal pay comparison, which involves a direct comparison of two people or groups of people carrying out the same work or work of equal value.

what is the mean pay gap?

The mean gender pay gap is the difference between the mean figures for men and women and is reported as a percentage. It’s calculated by adding up the wages of all our male and female employees and dividing it by the total number of employees.

what is the median pay gap?

Imagine if all believe housing employees stood in two lines, one line of female workers and one line of male workers. Each line then stood side by side in order of their hourly rate of pay, lowest to highest. The median gender pay gap is the difference in pay between our female colleague in the middle of her line and our male colleague in the middle of his line.
