Gender Pay Report

Gender Pay Report

What is the gender pay gap?

The gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women’s earnings across the business by expressing women’s pay as a percentage of men’s pay. This is different to equal pay. Equal pay refers to men and women receiving equal pay for equal work.

While we’re pleased that our gender pay gap of -1.64% is significantly below the UK (18.4%) median we are committed to ensuring we exercise equal opportunities across Gender, Age, and Race.

Our report shows that there are marginal differences between what women and men are paid across the whole business and this is due to a higher percentage of women in our workforce. In the care industry and especially at Active Assistance we have a predominantly high intake of female workers.  Our percentage split of men and women is 68% women 32% male at Active Assistance which means the gender pay is in favour of women.

This can also be seen in our quartile split below.
