Gender pay gap
This page explains what the gender pay gap is, why we have one and what we are doing to reduce it.
Gender pay gap
Greenfields Community Housing is committed to fair pay irrespective of gender. We will continue to do all we can to support our communities in promoting equality in all aspects of our work.
The Gender Pay Gap looks at the difference in the average pay of men and women in an organisation. This is different from Equal Pay, which is where men and women are paid the same pay for the same work. We pay the same to men and women who carry out the same work.
At Greenfields, as at April 2018, the average difference in pay was 9.43% between men and women, which means the average salary for men is 9.43% higher than the average salary for women.
This is a 3.57% reduction on April 2017.
Despite the narrowing pay gap, there remain fewer women in senior roles than men and a much higher number of women than men in the lower quartile.
All employees in repairs and maintenance trades are currently male. They receive payments for working out of hours and overtime, which increases the pay gap.
Greenfields Community Housing is committed to fair pay irrespective of gender. We support women returning to work through shared parental leave and part-time working and continue to offer flexible working options to employees at all levels.
