Gender Pay gap Results 2017
Hourly Rate Gap
On average women are paid 28% less than men in our UK (excluding N.l.) workforce. We are confident that women and men are largely paid the same for comparable roles and that the fact that more men hold more senior posts accounts for the overall difference in average earnings evident in this disclosure.
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.
