The gender pay gap is the difference between the average earnings of women and men across a workforce at a single point in time, expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings. It is not the same as equal pay, which refers to paying women and men the same wage for the same job.
Vorboss gender pay gap
The Vorboss gender pay gap report shows that we are making significant strides towards reducing the gender pay gap and increasing diversity within our workforce. In 2022, Vorboss had a -5.6% median gender pay gap, compared to the UK median gender pay gap of 9.4%.
We’re proud that the report highlights our commitment to equity, inclusion, and diversity in all business areas. We have implemented policies that encourage women to join and stay in our workforce. We have focused on improving diversity within our field-based roles, which are historically male-dominated within the industry.
Our CEO, Tim Creswick, comments, 'We grew our team dramatically during the period, yet I'm pleased to report that we seized the opportunity to do so inclusively. While we still have a lot more we want to do, I'm proud to report sector-leading gender diversity. Whilst the pay gap figures required by law don't show the full picture, we've worked hard to ensure women are on an absolutely equal footing in our organisation.'
It is important to mention that our 2023 data will reflect our emphasis on improving diversity in lower and middle roles. We need to focus on hiring and progressing more women into leadership roles. Although our report is very positive for 2022, we acknowledge that work is still to be done.
