GRANT & STONE LIMITED
GENDER PAY GAP STATEMENT
We are required by law to publish a statement relating to the gender pay gap within the company and we are reporting on the position as it was on 5th April 2018 and also on the position as it was on 5th April 2017.
The figures have been reached using the mechanisms that are set out in the gender pay gap reporting legislation, and we have reported using the following key metrics:-
The company is currently showing a mean gender pay gap of 0.64% compared with 5.03% in the previous year.
The company operates in an industry sector that is traditionally male-dominated, although this position is changing and continues to change. For this reason, the company sometimes has difficulty in recruiting females to the roles that are usually available but we are working hard to change this.
The company’s policy is driven by commercial considerations and we look always to recruit the most suitable candidates for the positions available and offer attractive remuneration and bonuses where applicable in order to recruit such candidates, regardless of gender.
All Directors and Managers involved in recruitment within the company are encouraged to recruit staff at all levels based on individual merit without regard for the gender of the individuals concerned.
We believe that we have taken care to calculate the information required correctly, and we confirm that the above information is accurate.
