We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing individual employee’s data.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and a government website. We will do this within one calendar year of 31 March 2017.

We can use these results to assess:
*        the levels of gender equality in our workplace
*        the balance of male and female employees at different levels
*        how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded.

The challenge in our organisation and across Great Britain is to eliminate any gender pay gap.
