Here at AGA Print we are committed to ensuring a fair, diverse and inclusive work place for all our employees. Not only does a healthy working environment promote employee engagement but in turn delivers a high quality service to our customers.
We are dedicated to ensuring the gender pay gap is monitored and improved upon to uphold our values and compete with our competitors within an ever-growing competitive industry.
Below is our summary for 2019 Gender Pay Report, providing steps we are taking as a business to address gaps across our company.
Facts behind the data
AGA Print Ltd gender pay results are mainly driven by the disproportioned ratio to women across the business. The results have not been driven by pay inequality as men and women in the same job function are paid equally.
The main reasons for the results are:
- Lower proportion of women in production roles, which are the main function for the business.
- Production roles tend to be highly skilled and therefore command a higher salary banding to reflect this.
- There are a higher proportion of women in our office support/sales & customer service roles which typically command a lower salary banding.
- Even though males do earn more than females, the bonus ration shows women receiving a higher bonus then men.
- The print industry has always been a male dominated.
Whats the plan?
AGA Print Ltd will look to reduce our Gender Pay Cap with the following action points:
- Encourage our women into production roles
- Continue to monitor the salary bandings in all roles across the business to ensure fair comparison of salaries between males and females
I confirm that AGA Print Ltd's gender pay calculations are accurate and meet the requirement of The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
