Gender Pay Gap

Gender Pay Gap Report For 2018


Here at SLM fairness is at the heart of everything we do and we always aim to treat our staff fairly and with respect. Employers with 250 or more employees are now required to report on their gender pay gap and publish it on their website. We are an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Using the results, we are able to access and work to improve on the following:

·       the levels of gender equality in our workforce

·       the balance of male and female employees at different levels

·       how effectively talent is being maximised and rewarded.

Gender Pay Reporting requires our organisation to make calculations based on employee gender. We will establish this by using our existing HR and payroll records. This involves carrying out six calculations that show the difference between the average earnings of men and women in our organisation; it will not involve publishing individual employee data.

St Leonards Motors Ltd is an equal opportunities employer, but as the Automotive industry has shown over many years, the sector tends to attract more male than female employees.

Ours, and the industries main challenge is to attract a higher volume of female applicants in all areas of the business.

For a number of years, we have recognised this imbalance and are committed to actively address the situation by increasing and retaining the number of female employees in our showrooms, workshops and within our management structure.

All of our employees are encouraged to grow, develop and earn to their full potential and we are confident that all employees working in the same positions will be earning the same pay.

We will strive to improve our gender pay gap and will publish the results again in April 2020 in accordance with the governments gender pay initiative.
