Gender Pay Gap Report

2017 Gender Pay Gap Report
Gender pay gap reporting requires employers with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing how large the pay gap is between their male and female employees.
Eastleigh Care Homes is proud to promote its equality, fairness and openness in relation to gender pay.
Pay & Bonus Gap
|Difference between male and female employees|
|Mean *||Median **|
*Mean is sometimes called the average. It is calculated by adding up all the hourly rates and dividing by the number of employees.
**Median looks at all employee hourly rates in numerical order and is the hourly rate at the middle of those hourly rates.
The table above shows our overall mean and median gender pay gap based on hourly rates as at the snapshot date. It also reflects the mean and median difference between bonuses paid to male and female employees at Eastleigh Care Homes up to the same date.
The mean hourly pay difference of -5.57%, meaning women get paid more, is significantly below the national average of 18.1%, men being paid more.
The overall pay gap is not related to different pay for people doing the same or similar jobs but is a reflection of the industry wide female representation in this sector.
The median hourly pay difference of -0.67% is a good representative of the equality across the organisation as a whole. By identifying the wage of the middle earner, the median is the best representation of the ‘typical’ gender difference.
The mean bonus paid calculation above shows that men receive more bonus pay than females, this is skewed by the low number of men receiving bonuses. The median calculation shows a 0% difference. We are not surprised by this outcome due to the make-up of our management team and relative pay of eligible role holders.
Proportion of Employees in Receipt of a Bonus for 2016/17
Our bonuses paid calculations show that only 5.54% of all Eastleigh Care Homes employees are eligible for a bonus (typically those in management posts).
The above chart demonstrates the gender distribution at Eastleigh Care Homes across four equally sized quartiles.
Eastleigh Care Homes is confident that male and female employees are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs across the business. We will however, continue to monitor and strive to reduce any gender pay gap that may arise.
I confirm that the information and data reported is accurate as of the snapshot date 5 April 2017.
