Building a diverse and inclusive culture is really important to us. A vital element of this is our commitment to reducing the Gender Pay Gap and being a workplace where everyone has the opportunity to reach their full potential, regardless of gender.
We believe diversity is a strength and value all our employees as individuals. Their different backgrounds, experience and perspectives provide the creativity, innovation and competitive advantage we need to grow our business.
Examining our Gender Pay Gap is important to us, not just because it’s the right thing to do but because it gives us another lens by which to evaluate the steps we are taking to improve the diversity of our workforce. The size of our Gender Pay Gap varies in different parts of the business and, like many companies in the Tech industry, we have seen fluctuations both up and down since we started our reporting four years ago, but have yet to see a long term sustained improvement.
Whilst this remains disappointing, we recognise that it will take time to create long-term change on gender balance in our sector, but we are undaunted by the challenge. Over the past two years we have taken significant steps to build a more inclusive culture and become a place more women want to work. We are committed to becoming a truly diverse and inclusive employer and – over time – to close the gender pay gap we see today.
You will see examples of what we’ve done so far and what we have planned for 2021 and beyond in the main body of our report.
