Gender Pay Gap Data
25 October 2017
KSS CRC pay gap significantly lower than national average
Kent Surrey & Sussex CRC is committed to the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees. As required under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 we have calculated our gender pay gap using the required analysis in order to show the difference between the average earnings of men and women across our business.
Gender Pay Gap reporting is not to be confused with Equal Pay; as an organisation KSS CRC has always been committed to ensuring they do not pay men and women differently for doing the same or equivalent work. The Gender Pay Gap is as a result of the roles which men and women are employed in and the salaries these roles attract.
Our report illustrates a mean gender pay gap of 0.76% and a median gap of 1.97%. These figures are representative of an employee base where 25.7% are male and 74.3% are female. Our figures are significantly lower than the national average and the gender pay gap is negligible. Principally this is due to having set pay scales and salary bands for all roles within the business.
