Results

The results below reflect that as a family orientated retailer we attract a significant number of female applicants, especially for our store roles. These positions are appealing to women due to the flexible working patterns available, which no doubt suit their lifestyle choices. In fact 91% of our store based colleagues are female. The majority of our retail roles are sales consultant positions, which are lower paid than management roles. This inevitably means we have a large number of women in lower paid jobs. Despite that, 91% of our supervisors are female and 76% of our managers are female which demonstrates that we have a clear progression path in place regardless of gender.

Women's Hourly Rate is:

34.4%

Pay Quartiles

What are Pay Quartiles?

The hourly rates for all colleagues are divided into four equal sections where the Lower Quartile represents the lowest hourly rates and the Top Quartile highlights the highest hourly rates. The proportion of men and women is then calculated and in each quartile.

The results are representative of the fact that whilst the vast majority of our colleagues are female we do have a significant number of women in management roles. In fact the percentages for women across all quartiles is very high purely down to the majority of colleagues being female.

Bonus Pay

How is Mean Bonus Pay Calculated?

This is the average bonus pay.

How is Median Bonus Pay Calculated?

This is the bonus pay which falls at the mid-point of all bonuses paid.

Results

We operate a monthly bonus scheme for our store based colleagues based on store performance which is calculated as a percentage of pay using hours worked in a specific reference period. As 75% of our female colleagues work part time, their bonus payments are less than males who tend to work more hours and therefore earn more bonus. A number of senior management colleagues based at Head Office were also paid a bonus based on company performance and this has significantly influenced the numbers.
