The gender pay gap is a measure of the difference between the average earnings of men and women across an organisation. The gender pay gap is not the same as equal pay.
Equal pay relates to men and women being paid equally for equal work. This is a legal requirement in the UK and an important matter of principle that Benenden Health is committed to and abides by.
Benenden Health believes in equal opportunities and the principle of equal pay for equal work of equal value. So, as much as possible, its policy is to keep pay gaps to a minimum, and have reported on gender pay from 2018 onwards. We remain confident that employees at the Society are paid the same for doing the same work.
We are committed to promoting diversity and gender equality. We have a strong female representation throughout all levels of our workforce, with 50% of our Leadership Team being female.
In May 2020 we published our Gender Pay Gap report for 2019.
