Gender Pay Gap

Gender pay gap is defined as the difference between the average hourly pay of men and women. As well as looking at basic differences in pay, the research identifies the characteristics that explain those differences such as age, occupation and level of education. The report is intended to further debate and highlight areas where intervention may be needed.

Although we run campaigns to recruit more female operatives, it is predominantly males who tend to gravitate more to occupations such as Plumbers, Heating Engineers, Builders and Electricians, therefore it becomes difficult to analyse the data below.

Based on a demographic of 75% male employees, the below results were found.
