What is Gender Pay Gap?
The UK government has introduced a requirement on all employers to publish their gender pay gap each year, based on data at the end of the preceding April. The government reporting rules require employers to identify differences in pay between male and female colleagues across the entire workforce regardless of job role.
The gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women's average earnings per hour and is expressed as a percentage of men's pay. Our mean Gender Pay Gap as at April 2018 was 2.3% (2017 was 3.3%). This is not the same as an "equal pay gap" which measures the pay for males and females doing the same work. At Staffline we are confident that men and women are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs across our business.
The causes of a gender pay gap can be a complex and shifting mix of factors including work, society and family, but by monitoring the pay gap between men and women we can better understand the gap and so target action to reduce it.
