As an employer of more than 250 employees, McGee Group is required to publish data annually, showing:
- The gender pay gap (not to be confused with equal pay – see below)
- The proportion of men and women employed at different pay band quartiles
- Bonus payments
Gender pay is the difference in average earnings (expressed as a percentage) for all of our male employees compared with all of our female employees irrespective of their roles in the business.
Equal pay, on the other hand, is a contractual right under UK law and means that individual men and women must get the same pay for doing equal work.
A large proportion of McGee’s workforce is male, due in large part to the challenge of attracting and retaining enough women to the construction sector.
On the snapshot date, 5th April 2018, the breakdown in gender representation was 88% Male and 12% Female.
This under-representation of women in the construction sector, in turn, has led to an overall gender pay gap as shown in the table below:
Due to the representation issues referred to earlier, on average, males received a higher bonus payment than females as shown in the table below.
