This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation. The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any Gender Pay gap. We are delighted to announce that we have a mean and median pay gap which shows that we are significantly lower than the UK average gender pay gap and significantly lower than the average for the ‘not for profit’ sector.

Why is Gender Pay reporting important?

Gender pay gap reporting shows the difference in the average earnings of all men and all women in an organisation. In order to measure the difference two calculations are made:

1. The mean gender pay gap reveals the difference between the mean hourly rates of pay of male full pay relevant employees and that of female full pay relevant employees.
2. The median gender pay gap reveals the difference between the median hourly rate of pay of male full-pay relevant employees and that of female full-pay relevant employees.

The data from our mean gender survey has been benchmarked against participants in the XpertHR Gender Pay Gap Reporting Service. Our data has also been benchmarked against data from the Office for National Statistics Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings of 2016. This has provided us with data which represents an average for UK organisation who participated in the survey and data which represents
organisations in the ‘not for profit’ sector.

Government legislation states that organisations with 250 employees or more will need to publish their gender pay gap data annually. From April 2017 employers have up to 12 months to publish this information.
