Gender Pay Reporting

 East End Foods Plc – Gender Pay Reporting

Introduction                                                  

This year, all UK employers with 250 or more employees are required to publish key metrics on their gender pay gap under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 (“the Regulations”). East End Foods Plc (“East End Foods”) believes in providing equal opportunities and so is happy to comply with these new regulations. The gender pay gap data will be a valuable tool to help East End Foods understand our workforce and focus attention on attracting and developing a diverse workforce.

As an established food manufacturer and retailer, East End Foods has traditionally attracted a high proportion of male employees.  While we work hard to welcome and encourage more females into our business, around 82% of our employee population was male on the snapshot reporting date (5 April 2017).

What is the gender pay gap and how does it relate to equal pay?

Gender pay is not the same as equal pay. The gender pay gap shows the difference in the average pay between all men and women across a whole organisation. One of the most significant influencing factors in East End Foods’ gender pay gap is the distribution of males and females between grades. In addition, there are other drivers of pay differences that may mean people in similar roles receive different pay, for example experience, tenure and geographic location.

Equal pay deals with pay differences between men and women who carry out the same jobs, similar jobs or work of equal value. The equal pay principle, set out in the Equality Act 2010, is that men and women performing equal work must receive equal pay, unless there is a material reason (not linked to gender) that justifies a difference.
