Godolphin is required by the UK Equality Act (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 to publish a set of statistics around pay and gender. These are as follows:
Difference between Gross Hourly Earnings Between Men and Women
0.19% in favour of men
5.74% in favour of women
Mean – being the average number when all numbers are added together and then divided
Median – the middle number when taking all numbers into account
Percentage of Men and Women in Pay Quartiles
Quarter 1 (lower)
Male Number 134
Female Number 25
Male Number 125
Female Number 34
Male Number 124
Female Number 34
Quarter 4 (higher)
Male Number 105
Female Number 53
The above shows gender distribution by the quartile, with each holding 158/9 eligible employees, based on salary, correct as at the end of April 2017. Figures have been organised by splitting employee numbers equally into four parts.
The Difference Between Bonus Payments Made to Men and Women
0.33% in favour of men
11.69% in favour of women
The Percentage of Men and Women Receiving a Bonus
Commentary on Godolphin’s Statistics
The UK national average gender pay gap is approximately 18% in favour of men (9.1% in favour of men for full time work) (source National Survey of Hours and Earnings). Godolphin’s gender pay gap, expressed as a mean value of 0.19% in favour of men, reflects only a tiny gender differential in gross pay.
The median gap of 5.74% in favour of women indicates that, although the population of women is smaller, it sits slightly above the male population when placed in order of gross hourly earnings.
Female representation is lower in all quartiles, but less so in the top quartile of salaries. This is perhaps not surprising, given that a significant proportion of our workforce are in manual jobs which tend to be more commonly carried out by men. Women are slightly better represented in the upper quartile, which will be composed of a higher percentage of professional and managerial roles.
