We believe in treating all our employees fairly and ensure that men and women are both paid the same for work of equal value.
You will see below our annual gender pay gap report, which complies with the new requirements under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
This in an important step towards greater transparency about gender differences in pay that will, in time, help society achieve an improved gender balance.
This is mcch’s first gender pay gap report and relates to the snapshot date of 5 April 2017.
In accordance with the legislation we are required to calculate and publish the following information:
- the difference in the mean pay of full-pay men and women is 0%;
- the difference in the median pay of full-pay men and women is 0%;
- the difference in mean bonus pay of men and women is 0%;
- the difference in median bonus pay of men and women is 0%;
- the proportion of men and women who received bonus pay is 0%; and
- the proportion of full-pay men and women in each of four quartile pay bands is as follows:
mcch works in the social care sector, which has a predominately female workforce. Across the organisation 74% of our employees are female and 26% are male, with men and women represented reasonably evenly at every level of the organisation.
The national average gender pay gap (based on the Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings figures) is currently 18%. Against that average we are very pleased that mcch’s figures are gender neutral. We are satisfied that our pay rates are fair and free from any gender pay bias and believe that this view is supported by our gender pay report.
We will continue to monitor and report on our gender pay gap and will take action to address any issues raised.
"I confirm that the above information is accurate and the figures have been calculated using the mechanisms set out in the gender pay gap reporting legislation."
