Gender Pay Gap Reporting – Period Ending March 2018

It is a legal requirement for organisations of 250 employees or more to report annually on their Gender Pay Gap.

This is not the same as equal pay which covers differences between the pay between men and women carrying out the same jobs.  It is unlawful to pay people unequally for the same job based on whether they are a man or a woman. Fizz Experience can confirm no instances of unequal pay exist within its workforce.

The Gender Pay Gap reporting periods in question are 01/03/2018 – 31/03/2018 for ordinary pay and 01/04/2017 – 31/03/2018 for bonus payments.

The results are as follows;

  • Mean Gender Pay gap is 9.49%
  • Median Gender Pay gap is 0.28%
  • Mean Bonus Gender Pay gap is 64.56%
  • Median Bonus Gender Pay gap is 42.86%
  • Proportion of males receiving a bonus is 8.77%
  • Proportion of females receiving a bonus is 8.65%
  • Proportion of males in lower quartile is 20.31%
  • Proportion of females in lower quartile is 79.69%
  • Proportion of males in lower middle quartile is 21.76%
  • Proportion of females in lower middle quartile is 78.24%
  • Proportion of males in upper middle quartile is 22.80%
  • Proportion of females in upper middle quartile is 77.20%
  • Proportion of males in upper middle quartile is 23.71%
  • Proportion of females in upper middle quartile is 76.29%

The significant majority of our workforce are employed on a flexible basis and paid based on an hourly rate of pay.  The Gender Pay Gap challenges remains that this type of work historically attracts far more females and in fact the proportion of females in these roles has increased since the last reporting period.

The gender mix in our salaried and clerical teams is more evenly balanced.  Female representation in these roles has increased in the reporting period.

The executive team has a male majority with only 2 females currently in senior leadership roles. This is unchanged from the last reporting period.

We remained committed to recruiting the best possible staff for any given position and believe a more gender balanced workforce would only benefit our business.
