In accordance with gender pay gap reporting regulations we are publishing our statistics for 2017.
These statistics look at the difference in the average and median hourly rates of pay and bonus pay for male and female employees, regardless of their role or seniority. The statistics are based on the prescribed snapshot date of 5 April 2017.

Difference in hourly rate

The mean pay gap is the difference between average hourly earnings of men and women. The median pay gap is the difference between the midpoints in the ranges of hourly earnings for men and women.

To calculate the median, all hourly rates in the sample are lined up from highest to lowest for men and for women and the median is the middle rate for men and for women.

Mean pay gap 2%
Median pay gap 0%

We are confident we pay men and women the same amount for doing equivalent work, but in common with many employers, we have more men than women in senior positions and this creates a gender pay gap.

Proportion of women & men in each pay quartile

Upper quartile 32% women 68% men
Upper middle quartile 24% women 76% men
Lower middle quartile 38% women 62% men
Lower quartile 42% women 58% men

Bonus pay

The bonus statistics are based on the bonuses received by our workforce in the year to 5 April 2017. Women’s mean bonus pay is 58% higher than men’s, and women’s median bonus pay is 25% lower than men’s.

Mean bonus gap (58%)
Median bonus gap 25%
13% of women received bonus pay
13% of men received bonus pay

Here at Brasserie Blanc there is no complacency regarding the outcome of this analysis and we remain committed to paying our staff a fair wage based on their job role and responsibilities.
