The gender pay gap is a measure of the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women.
This involves carrying out legally required calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation.
The gender pay gap should not be confused with unequal pay, which is the unlawful practice of paying men and women differently for performing the same or similar work or work of equal value.
Statistics as at 31 March 2022
Mean: 1.9% in favour of women
Median: 5.5% in favour of women
These calculations make use of two types of averages:
- A mean average involves adding up all of the numbers and dividing the result by how many numbers were in the list.
- A median average involves listing all of the numbers in numerical order. If there is an odd number of results, the median average is the middle number. If there is an even number of results, the median will be the mean of the two central numbers.
