Addressing the Gender Pay Gap
Gender pay gap is different to equal pay and shows the difference in average pay between men and women. The data shows that females continue to be over represented in roles in the lowest pay quartiles and underrepresented in the top 3 quartiles, in particular the upper middle and upper quartile. The construction industry continues to employ significantly greater numbers of men compared to women. Having said this we are seeing more female staff represented in these quartiles than in previous years.
Our gender pay gap is not because women earn less than men in similar roles but because there is a greater number of men within senior positions within the group.
Our gender pay gap is not because women earn less than men in similar roles but because there is a greater number of men within senior positions within the group. We continue to see a greater proportion of female staff employed in office based administration roles and fewer employed in technical and commercial roles and we need to attract more women into these roles. There continues to be a need to liaise with local schools and colleges to change the misconception of the construction industry.
Thomas Armstrong is committed to working towards closing and eliminating our gender pay gap. This will not be a quick process however there are a number of actions which will be taken in future recruitment which will go some way to addressing this.
