What is the ‘Gender Pay Gap’?

    The gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women’s average salaries. New reporting regulations, under the Equality Act 2010, were introduced by the UK Government in 2017 requiring all employers with 250+ employees to publish outcomes to statutory calculations every year, showing the size (as a percentage difference) of any pay gap between their male and female employees.

    For clarity, the above results show hourly rate pay gaps in favour own our female members of staff. Nationally, the last reported median gender pay gap showed an an 18.1% male / female pay gap.

    Herts for Learning Bonus Pay Gap


    For clarity, the above results show near identical mean bonus pay, and a median bonus pay gap in favour of our male members of staff. This is largely brought about by a high proportion of female variable hours staff. While these contractual hourly / daily rates of pay are more than competitive, variable work volumes mean the median female bonus pay is impacted.

    In 2016/17, 53.5% of male staff and 66.7% of female staff employed by Herts for Learning received a bonus.

    Pay Quartiles

    In April 2017, 73.6% of Herts for Learning staff were female and 26.4% were male. The final requirement placed upon the Company is to segment our hourly rates of pay into quartiles, broken down by gender. The charts below sets out the percentage of female and male employees over four equal pay bands or quartiles.
