Derby City Council today announces its Gender pay gap results, which shows a positive picture with the mean gap at £0.13 per hour between male and female staff and the median gap at £0.39.
The results show an improvement from 2018/19 figures of £0.11 per hour.
Our overall workforce is 67% female and 33% male and we aim for similar proportions across our pay grades. In the upper quartile, with 70% female and 30% male staff, this broadly reflects our overall workforce. This is also the case in the upper-middle quartile, with 65% female and 35% male.
We have more to do in the lower two quartiles, where there’s a greater proportion of women than the overall workforce with a 70%/30% female/male split in the lower-middle and 63%/37% in the lower quartiles.
The Equality Act 2010 Regulations 2017 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 staff based on a series of calculations to provide a fair and accurate summary of pay.
