Gender Pay Gap Report

Under legislation that came into force in April 2017, UK employers with more than 250 employees are required to publish their gender pay gap revealing average pay information for men and women.

The gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women’s average hourly pay across the organisation, regardless of job.  This is different to ‘equal pay’ which means that men and women who carry out the same or similar job roles must be paid the same.

Signature Senior Lifestyle Operations Limited embraces these regulations as they lead to greater transparency and encourage action to reduce the gender pay gap which can be evidenced in our results below.
