Gender Pay Gap

The White Brasserie Company Limited

In accordance with gender pay gap reporting regulations we are publishing our statistics for 2017.

These statistics look at the difference in the average and median hourly rates of pay and bonus pay for male and female employees, regardless of their role or seniority. The statistics are based on the prescribed snapshot date of 5 April 2017.

Difference in hourly rate

The mean pay gap is the difference between average hourly earnings of men and women. The median pay gap is the difference between the midpoints in the ranges of hourly earnings for men and women.

To calculate the median, all hourly rates in the sample are lined up from highest to lowest for men and for women and the median is the middle rate for men and for women. Our median pay gap at 3% is significantly lower than the national average median pay gap of 18.1%.

Mean pay gap 15%
Median pay gap 3%

We are confident we pay men and women the same amount for doing equivalent work, but in common with many employers, we have more men than women in senior positions and this creates a gender pay gap.

Proportion of women & men in each pay quartile

Upper quartile 20% women 80% men
Upper middle quartile 32% women 68% men
Lower middle quartile 45% women 55% men
Lower quartile 55% women 45% men

Bonus pay

The bonus statistics are based on the bonuses received by our workforce in the year to 5 April 2017. Women’s mean bonus pay is 45% higher than men’s, and women’s median bonus pay is 9% lower than men’s.

Mean bonus gap (45%)
Median bonus gap 9%
7% of women received bonus pay
12% of men received bonus pay

Here at The White Brasserie Company there is no complacency regarding the outcome of this analysis and we remain committed to paying our staff a fair wage based on their job role and responsibilities.
