Notting Hill Genesis publishes first gender pay gap report
Today, Notting Hill Genesis has published its first Gender Pay Gap report since our merger, showing the difference in average pay between men and women within the organisation.
Government requires all organisations with more than 250 employees to publish the data, which is taken on a snapshot of 5 April 2018.
Our mean gender pay gap, which is the difference between average salaries for men and women, works out at 21.66 per cent.
Prior to the merger, Genesis Housing Association had a mean gender pay gap of 19.81 per cent, while Notting Hill Housing’s was 25.8 per cent.
That the Notting Hill Genesis figure sits in between is no surprise, as the snapshot date came just one day after our merger.
Our gender pay gap is heavily impacted by our workforce profile, with 42 per cent of our staff being employed in care and support. Salaries in this sector are generally lower, as they are constrained by how much local authorities are able to pay for care, and 82 per cent of the workforce is made up of women.
As with all roles across Notting Hill Genesis, the salaries we pay are in line with the market for that type of work. When looking at the organisation excluding care and support, the mean gender pay gap reduces to just 6.59 per cent.
The gender pay gap is not the same as equal pay – whether women and men are paid differently for the same work. We have a clear policy of paying employees equally for the same or equivalent work.
We are about to consult with staff on a Diversity and Inclusion Action Plan to help tackle the gender pay gap, while aiming to achieve a more balanced spread of men and women throughout the organisation.
