Eight out of 10 big firms pay men more than women

08 Апреля 2018

"While our male and female employees are fairly compensated based on merit and without reference to gender, our gender pay gap is driven primarily by the structure of our workforce", it reads.

These numbers show a slightly mixed picture at Vice with its mean number slightly higher than the national average of 17.4% but its median figure lower than the 18.4% average. One can now peruse the database and find public pay and bonus pay data for a number of game companies, including Frontier Developments ("women's mean hourly rate is 14.9% lower than men's"), Electronic Arts ("women's mean hourly rate is 13.7% lower than men's"), and Jagex ("women's mean hourly rate is 21.7% lower than men's").

Vice management said that it wanted to share the figures with staff in order to remain "committed to being open and transparent".

Britain's biggest companies have lifted the lid on gender pay gap - with eight out of 10 admitting they pay men more than women.

The gender pay gap is calculated as the difference between the average salaries of men and women but it is not the same as equal pay, where firms are required to pay people doing the same job the same salary, regardless of gender. It comes days before a legal deadline for all companies with more than 250 employees to publish details of their gender pay gap.

Chief executive of the EHRC Rebecca Hilsenrath said: "This is not optional; it is the law and we will be fully enforcing against all companies that do not report". The MPs are also asking women to take part in a survey, which they say will "help inform our work tackling the gender pay gap and fighting for equality in UK".

The figures suggested Millwall Holdings PLC the parent company of Millwall FC, reported a gender pay gap of 80%; GoToDoc, which runs GP practices, urgent care and after hours dental services in the North West had 77%; and women's underwear chain Boux Avenue had 75.7%.

Equality campaigner The Fawcett Society said pay gap reporting "forces employers to look at themselves and understand their organisations, and it prompts employees to ask some hard questions".

"But even better than that, finally women are realising that they have a right to talk about pay and they can not be silenced. It is much more common than people realise.".
