Government regulations stipulate that all companies with 250 or more employees are required to report on their mean (average hourly rate) and median (the middle hourly rate of all female and male employees) pay gap; based on their employees on 5 April 2017.
Nationally the average gap is 18.1%, however, results vary when looking at the housing and care sectors where the gaps range between 0.14% and 28.6% in favour of males in the housing sector, and -23.5% and 27.5% in favour of females in the care sector.
As part of the regulations, we are also required to divide our employees into four quartiles (from highest earners to our lowest earners) and report the percentage of males and females in each quartile.
The highlights from the report are as follows:
- Our mean results highlights an 8.4% gap in favour of males (there is currently no national average for this)
- Our median results highlights an 8.1% gap in favour of males (the national average is an 18.1% gap)
