Hourly Rate Gap
We are confident that women and men are largely paid the same for comparable roles. The overall difference in average earnings identified in this disclosure is due primarily to the underrepresentation of women in senior leadership posts.
Note that the value of any car allowance paid has been included in the hourly rate gaps calculation; however, the value of any company cars has been excluded, per the legislative reporting guidelines. As a result, those who elect to have a company car do not have their benefit represented in their hourly rate calculation, creating disparity with car allowance recipients. Proportionally, more women than men elect to have a company car over a cash allowance, so average numbers for women are more adversely influenced compared to the average for men.
