When it comes to gender and gender pay, we believe in equality. We practise equal pay for equal work. Our UK Gender Pay Gap report focuses on our pay gap, setting out the difference in average hourly pay between men and women across the organisation, as at the snapshot date of 5th April 2017.
Our UK Gender Pay Gap report has been prepared under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Information) Regulations 2017. Below are the overall gender pay gap data from across all our UK operations.
According to the Office for National Statistics, in 2017 the UK’s median gender pay gap for full and part time staff combined was 18.4% in favour of men. Our overall UK median gender pay gap for the same period was lower than this at 0.1%. Our mean gender pay picture for 2017 was 12.8%, which compares with the ONS national average for the UK of 17.4%.
The best ideas come from a rich variety of perspectives and backgrounds – it’s how we innovate and it’s integral to our culture and values.
Women are an important part of RB’s business. They represent almost 75% of our consumers, both online and in store. It is just one of the many reasons why we overwhelmingly support equality and diversity across the organisation.
RB believes our gender and inclusion policies deliver tangible results. They lead to a better workplace, better decision making and better execution because of the diversity of our people, their cultures and more importantly, their unique perspectives.
