What is the gender pay gap?

Signature Senior Lifestyle Operations Limited is committed to ensuring equitable pay irrespective of gender for employees undertaking the same roles within each of its homes.

As a result, from 2017, employers with more than 250 employees are legally obliged to publish their gender pay gap data on their website and report this data to the government. The specific calculations are as follows:

  • Mean gender pay gap in hourly pay;
  • The median gender pay gap in hourly pay;
  • Mean bonus gender pay gap;
  • Median bonus gender pay gap;
  • The proportion of males and females receiving a bonus payment; and
  • The proportion of males and females in each quartile
