UK Gender pay gap report 2017: Dean Healthcare

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.

Legislative requirements

All UK companies with 250 or more employees on the 5th April 2017 are required to publish
specific gender pay information

  • Mean and median gender pay gap
  • Mean and median gender bonus gap
  • Proportion of males and females receiving bonus
  • Proportion of male and females by quartile pay band
  • Figures for each legal entity with at 250 employees on the snapshot date must be recorded, calculated and reported separately
  • The mean and median gender gap is based on hourly rates of pay as at 5th April 2017
  • The mean and median gender bonus gap considers bonus pay received in the 12 months leading up to 5th April 2017
  • Pay quartiles look at the proportion of men and women in four pay bands when we divide our workforce into four equal parts
