What is the gender pay gap?
The gender pay gap is the measure between the average earnings of men and women across an organisation. The gender gap is not the same as equal pay. Equal pay relates to men and women being paid equally. This is a legal requirement in the UK and it is important that Dean Healthcare abides by it.
All UK companies with 250 or more employees on the 5th April 2017 are required to publish
specific gender pay information
Dean Heathcare’s objective is to ensure the skills and talents of our team is utilised, and no existing or new team member receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of gender, marital status, social class, colour, race, ethnic origin, creed, age, sexual orientation or disability
With this in mind we welcome the introduction of mandatory gender pay gap reporting. It will allow us to evaluate our teams and the work we are doing to address our gap.
It has been suggested that the gap in the UK may not close until 2040 - Dean Healthcare is committed to ensuring it won’t take that long in our organisation.
