InspireAll Pay Gap Report 2018

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 at 5 April 2018. 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

  • 17.8% – Women’s hourly rate is 17.8% higher than our male employees. Some of these are specialists, such as swimming teachers and class instructors earning a higher rate of pay for these roles.

Median Hourly Rate of Pay

  • 3.7% – 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 of pay for males is higher

Bonus Payment – Mean

  • 23% – Females earnt 23% more in bonus payments, this is due to a higher percentage of females working in roles where bonuses are achievable.

Bonus Payment – Median

  • 51.3%

Percentage Of Employees Who Received Bonus Pay

  • Males – 21.2%
  • Females – 18.8%

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 2017 – 2018.

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.
