NWH Group's Gender Pay Gap: A Closer Look at the Numbers 

NWH Group's Gender Pay Gap: A Closer Look at the Numbers 

In a world where equality and diversity are at the forefront of discussions, NWH Group is taking a transparent approach to address our gender pay gap. The company has recently released data on its gender pay gap, shedding light on the factors that contribute to this gap within our organisation. 

The mean gender pay gap at NWH Group is 6.23%, which, when compared to the UK's gender pay gap of 15.5% (as of 2021, according to the Office for National Statistics), shows the company is performing relatively well in terms of gender pay equality. 

The mean gender pay gap signifies the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women within the organisation. While two of the four pay quartile bands at NWH Group have higher average pay for women, the overall mean pay for men is greater than that for women. This discrepancy is largely due to the fact that males are better represented within managerial and professional-grade roles, which tend to command higher salaries. 

The median gender pay gap at NWH Group is -2.88%, which may come as a surprise to some. This negative median gender pay gap signifies that, on average, female employees earn slightly more than their male counterparts when comparing the middle salaries within the company. This trend is particularly pronounced in the upper quartile of the workforce, where there are fewer female employees. While the mean pay for females is less than males, the median female employee is paid more than the median male employee. 

However, it is essential to recognise that this comparison does not assess the average pay within specific job roles for both genders within the organisation. Instead, it reflects the overall male-to-female average hourly pay. NWH Group acknowledges that a substantial portion of its workforce occupies roles in male-dominated sectors, and a higher percentage of those in such roles are males. This gender distribution reflects industry norms in Scotland and Northeast England. 

Addressing the Gap 

NWH Group is committed to promoting equality and diversity within its workforce. While the company's gender pay gap figures reflect the broader industry's gender distribution, it is actively working on initiatives to close the gap further. These initiatives include promoting gender diversity in leadership positions, offering equal opportunities for career growth, and providing training and support to ensure pay equity within similar roles. 

The NWH Group recognises the importance of addressing its gender pay gap and is committed to creating an inclusive and diverse workplace. The company's transparent reporting on the subject reflects its dedication to progress and its mission to ensure that all employees are given equal opportunities and fair compensation, regardless of gender. As NWH Group continues to evolve, it remains steadfast in its pursuit of gender equality in the workplace.
