Gender Pay Gap Report 2017

Purpose

We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

This involves carrying out a number of calculations to show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it does not involve publishing individual employee data.

We can use these results to assess:

  • the levels of gender equality in our workplace
  • the balance of male and female employees at different levels
  • how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded

The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any gender pay gap. Percy ingle welcomes this challenge and we believe that these reports are an important step in bridging the pay gap that exists in the UK today.

Our Results

Our workforce is made up of 307 staff, of which 88 are men and 219 are women. The data contained within this report is across all roles. As a 24 hour business a night shift premium of 18% is paid to all night shift staff and our night shift is made up of 58 men and 1 woman. We have included the Pay Rates as they would be without this premium below for comparison.

 

Total Pay Hourly Rate

Mean 27.4%

Median 26.5%

In other words when comparing mean hourly rates, women earn 73p for every £1 that men earn. When comparing median hourly rates, women earn 74p for every £1 than men earn.

 

Hourly Rate Adjusted for Night Premium

Mean 14.9%

Median 7.8%

In other words when comparing mean hourly rates, women earn 85p for every £1 that men earn. When comparing median hourly rates, women earn 92p for every £1 than men earn.

Bonus Payments

As a Company that encourages increased salaries and promotion as a reward rather than bonus payments, this section of the Gender Pay Gap report is not applicable to us.

 

Conclusion

Whilst we actively recruit for all roles regardless of gender, from the results of this report we can identify the following:

  • Our Company does not pay men and women different rates of pay for doing the same or equal jobs
  • The majority of applicants for all entry level roles are female
  • The majority of applicants for our night shift roles are male
  • We should consider re-evaluating our night shift roles to attract more female applicants

As a designated member of Percy Ingle Employee Services LLP I can confirm that the information within this report is correct.
