Deluxe UK Gender Pay Gap Report 2019 | Addressing Gender Representation | Pursuing Diversity
Now in its second year, UK legal entities with 250 or more employees are required to report on their gender pay gap by law. In addition, companies have also been asked to report on the proportion of male and female employees receiving bonuses.
As a leading technology company in the media and entertainment industry, we welcome this initiative and are delighted to present Deluxe UK Gender Pay Gap Report 2019.*
Our analysis shows that in a year marked by significant transformation and disruption felt across our industry, Deluxe has kept the overall difference between male and female Deluxe UK employees’ earnings below the national average of 17.9%. Our two relevant legal entities - Deluxe Media Europe Ltd and Deluxe 142 Ltd – reported a gender pay gap of 7.45% and 12.89% (mean) and 6.02% and 12.04% (median) respectively. This gap is primarily caused by a lack of female representation within senior management roles, something we continue to address within the organization.
In terms of bonuses, Deluxe has been working hard on narrowing its gap. The proportion of male and female employees receiving a bonus at Deluxe Media Europe Ltd is 13% men and 12.7% women. At Deluxe 142 Ltd it is 29.2% men and 30.0% women.
As we strive to reduce the gender pay gap further, the report also outlines a series of actions we have taken, and will continue to take, as we make progress towards achieving greater female representation in our senior roles.
Together, we remain dedicated to building an inclusive work environment where equal opportunities are provided for all.
