Gender pay gap report 2017
Under new legislation, employers in the UK with 250 or more employees are required to report gender pay gap information every year. The data identifies the difference between women’s and men’s average weekly earnings, shown as a percentage of men’s earnings. It allows us to measure women’s overall position compared to men but does not compare like for like roles. It is therefore distinct from equal pay, which compares men and women carrying out equivalent work.
Our report illustrates the difference between male and female earnings on 5 April 2017.
The care sector is dominated by women and Prestige’s workforce reflects this being made up of 88% women and 12% men. Our mean pay gap is -7.5%, which means that on average women are paid more than men. The median pay gap of 3.2% means that men are paid more when you line up all hourly pay in order from lowest to highest and pick out the middle earnings.
We have a mean bonus pay gap of -53.7%and median bonus pay gap of -40.0%. This means that women were paid more bonus pay on average than their male counterparts. Bonus pay is predominantly paid to roles held by women as well as paid in the form recognition for schemes such as member and employee of the month.
We are fully committed to the principles of equal opportunities and to being an inclusive and diverse organisation with a long term commitment to gender balance.
