Results

The mean gender pay gap is 2.54% which is significantly lower than the UK average. Our median pay gap is 3.3%.

We work in a female dominated industry where operatives are on the same wage regardless of their gender.
As we are a contract cleaning company we are subject to TUPE regulations on many of our contracts. Under TUPE staff are transferred by law, maintaining pay rates and hours, from one cleaning provider to another when a contract is transferred or awarded.
The vast majority of our workforce is cleaning staff (91% of relevant staff at the snapshot date), Accordingly under TUPE regulations there is restricted opportunity to address a gender pay gap should it arise in this section of our work force.

Only a small proportion of our workforce received a bonus in the last financial year. Due to only such a small proportion of our workforce receiving a bonus this leads to a very skewed result when reporting by gender.
The mean bonus payment for women was 60.62% higher than for men and the median bonus payment for women was 585% higher than for men.
We have taken this opportunity to review all the bonuses awarded in the year, and we are satisfied that they were awarded based on performance achievement rather than showing a bias towards our female employees.
