Gender Pay Gap Review
Statement from Julian Cordy, CEO, Field Sales Solutions Limited:
As an employer with a workforce in excess of 250 employees or more on 5th April 2020, Field Sales Solutions must comply with statutory provisions regarding Gender Pay Gap reporting. This requires us to carry out six calculations and publish the results each year, showing the size of the pay gap between our male and female employees.
We have calculated the relevant figures set out below, using the mechanisms that are set out in the gender pay gap reporting legislation. I can confirm that these figures have been verified and checked to ensure their accuracy.
Due to the impact of Covid resulting in a large number of employees being placed on Furlough Leave, the calculations for the mean and median pay gap were based on a small percentage of workforce who remained at work at the snapshot date of 5th April 2020. The rate of pay gap has improved, there is now only a very slight difference in the mean pay gap, whilst the median pay gap has changed from slightly favouring males in 2019 to slightly favouring females in 2020. There has been an improvement with the mean and median bonus pay gap, with the genders continuing to align, as well as a greater percentage overall of employees receiving a bonus. Field Sales Solutions will continue to review salaries on an annual basis, in order to continue achieving the objective of aligning earnings between genders.
We continue to be committed as an equal opportunities employer.
