Isle Of Wight Council's Gender Pay Gap Revealed

Deadline day: Latecomers to gender pay gap in reporting scramble to meet today's deadline GENDER PAY GAP REPORTING: 'WHAT GETS MEASURED GETS CHANGED'
Lindsey Cook | 05 April, 2018, 01:23

The numbers are at times uncomfortable reading in an industry that has traditionally been male-dominated, though female executives are increasingly being appointed to senior roles.

Yorkshire Water and its sister company Loop Customer Management released their gender pay gap figures yesterday (3 April) for 3,500 employees. The national average median is 18.4%.

Nearly all of the East Anglian companies required to report revealed a pay gap favouring men, with construction group Breheny, audio visual firm Midwich and insurance giant Aviva revealing some of the biggest gaps.

Only 8% said they had no median gender pay gap at all. Some 49% of the lowest-earning employees at BA are women; that figure rises to 80% at Virgin Atlantic, 73.7% at Jet2, 68.9% at EasyJet and 57% at Ryanair.

British Prime Minister Theresa May has described the UK's gender pay gap as a "burning injustice" and said that society will remain poorer for as long as it persists.

FA chairman Greg Clarke said: "The number of men applying for jobs at the FA is significantly higher than the number of women and so we are working hard to improve the pipeline in the early stages of recruitment to increase the possibility of hiring a more balanced workforce". Measures include employee-led working groups to tackle diversity, a new code of conduct, revised parental leave policies and more diverse candidate pools.

Alison Wilde is a director of business mentoring firm Birdsoup, which is helping to deliver the We Can mentoring scheme for young businesswomen in Norfolk.

"We have made some progress, but we have significant work to do, and we, as leaders of our firm, are committed to doing this critical work", CEO Lloyd Blankfein and President David Solomon said in March.

That puts it far ahead of the United Kingdom median average of 18 percent, and also substantially ahead of the pay gap in the retail and IT industries.

"[Gender pay gap figures] go beyond just the issue of equal pay and look at whether you're promoting women as much as you are men, whether you are giving them bonuses to the same degree as you're giving men bonuses, whether for example you have lots of underpaid women at the bottom of your organisation", he told Al Jazeera.

Over half of women (51 per cent) who have a bank account are likely to switch their bank, compared to 37 per cent of men. In the upper pay quartile, the proportion of employees is 63.3% men and 36.7% women.

HuffPost UK is one of more than 50 Oath brands. And she applauded efforts by TSB to help women return to the workplace after taking time out for children or other care duties.

Universal Music UK said that 1,330 staff are covered by its gender pay submission to the government.
