Gender pay gap reporting

As we are a public sector organisation employing more than 250 staff, we have to report on our gender pay gap.

We base our gender pay gap reporting on a snapshot of workforce data as at 30 March 2020.

Our gender pay gap reporting needs to include;

  1. The mean gender pay gap; the difference between the mean hourly rate of pay of male employees and that of female employees.
  2. The median gender pay gap; the difference between the median (middle) hourly rate of pay of male employees and that of female employees.
  3. The mean bonus gap; the difference between the mean bonus pay paid to male employees and that paid to female employees.
  4. The median bonus gap; the difference between median bonus pay paid to male employees and that paid to female employees.
  5. The bonus proportions; the proportions of male and female employees paid a bonus during the reporting period.
  6. The quartile pay bands; the proportions of male and female employees in the lower, lower middle, upper middle and upper quartile pay bands.
