Gender Pay Gap report for 2018
ENABLE Scotland is pleased to publish its Gender Pay Gap report for 2018 for ENABLE Scotland (Leading the Way) and ENABLE Scotland Limited.
As an employer with more than 250 staff, we are required to publish the Gender Pay Gap for ENABLE Scotland (Leading the Way) on an annual basis.
The Gender Pay Gap is the difference between the average earnings of women and men within the organisation irrespective of their position.
Analysis of pay for our 1,800 staff shows that the average earnings for females is 2.7% higher than for males. This represents a very slight increase in favour of females from the 2.6% gap we reported for 2017.
We are pleased to be able to report this figure which reflects the fact that our workforce is 72% female, represented across all roles in the organisation including executive level.
We have also elected to publish the Gender Pay Gap for ENABLE Scotland Limited voluntarily.
For a much smaller cohort of 37 staff, there is a similar pay gap in favour of women of 5.2% – an increase from 2.2% in 2017.
We will continue to monitor the gender pay gap going forward and will publish figures annually in accordance with the regulations.
Commenting on the figures, our CEO Theresa Shearer said:
“At ENABLE Scotland we value all of our staff equally for the work that they do every day to further our aim of an equal society for every person who has a learning disability and to deliver excellent quality social care and support across the country.
“I am pleased that our report demonstrates that at ENABLE Scotland, the very small gender pay gap that we have is in favour of female employees, in contrast to the pay gap in favour of males across many sectors.
“This reflects both our record of developing and promoting women into leadership positions, and our success in recruiting men into careers in social care to boost the diversity of what has traditionally been an overwhelmingly female workforce.”
