InspireAll has carried out a Gender Pay Gap review, in line with the UK Government’s reporting regulations. The data provided is a snapshot as of 5th April 2019. The review involved carrying out six calculations, detailed below, that show the differences between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing any data on individuals. It has been identified that as an employer of Leisure facilities and Family Support services, our workforce is made up of predominantly female workers, many working part-time hours which is reflected in the results.
Mean hourly rate of pay
-10.9% – Women’s hourly rate is 10.9% higher than our male employees. Some of these are specialist roles, such as swimming teachers and class instructors which attract a higher rate of pay.
Median hourly rate of pay
4.5% – As an organisation, 70% of our staff are female and are working in the lower pay bands and therefore the results show that the median rate of pay for males is slightly higher.
Bonus payments – mean
-26% – Females earnt 26% more in bonus payments, this is due to a higher percentage of females working in roles where bonuses are achievable.
Bonus payments – median
Percentage of employees who received bonus pay
- Males – 19.6%
- Females – 20.4%
Employees By Pay Quartiles
We are pleased to see that in some areas the Gender Pay Gap has reduced over the 12 month period for 2018 – 2019. The challenge for us as an organisation continues to be to attract more males into the Family Support service part of our business which predominantly appeals to the female gender. In addition, many roles in Leisure are part-time roles, which is appealing to females with childcare responsibilities. We will continue to monitor these figures on an annual basis and are determined to ensure that wherever possible we have a balanced workforce in terms of age, gender and ethnicity, in order to represent the communities that we serve.
