How does Orbis ‘s gender pay gap compare?
The mean gender pay gap for all employees and the whole economy (according to the 2019 Office for National Statistics (ONS) Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings (ASHE) figures) is 17.3%. At -2.6%, Orbis is pleased to report that whilst the vast majority of organisations have a gender pay gap, as at the date of this report, woman in our organisation, on average, earn more than men.
The proportion of men at Orbis who received a bonus in the 12 months up to 5 April 2019 was 77.8%, while for women this was 60.8% (4.1% more than last year). Our mean and median bonus gap reflects the higher proportion of men in roles, that under our current policy, attract a bonus scheme. However, we are pleased that progress is being made, with more women receiving bonus than the previous year.
The fact that our workforce contains such a wide range of roles and the high proportion of male employees in some of those roles means that completely eliminating the bonus gap is a challenge. However, we are using
these results to identify steps which we can take to make sure that opportunities are equal for all irrespective of gender.
What is Orbis doing to address its gender pay gap?
Orbis has not remained complacent on this subject and have committed to doing everything that we can to reduce the gap. We are therefore very pleased that our efforts in this regard has eliminated the mean and
median pay gap, resulting in woman earning than men. Even though this is case, we will keeping our pay and reward structures under ongoing review and we will be monitoring our bonus structures to ensure that strong
performance is properly rewarded and that nobody feels disadvantaged in respect of their ability to achieve the incentives available to colleagues.
Orbis remains committed to the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees, regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, age, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability. It has a clear policy of paying employees equally for the same or equivalent work, regardless of their sex (or any other characteristic set out above).
We have well established policies confirming our commitment to equal opportunities to ensure that no employee is subjected to discrimination in the workplace.
I, Guy Other, Chief Executive Officer, confirm that the information in this statement is accurate.
