Understanding our Gender Pay Gap

Understanding our Gender Pay Gap

WESC Foundation’s workforce consists of 75% female employees and 25% male employees which is representative of the care sector. We have 43% of female employees working on a part time basis compared to just 10% of males working part time.

WESC Foundation is committed to the principle of equal opportunities for all employees, regardless of sex, race, religion or belief, age, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy/maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability.

We operate a performance related pay system, the aim of this system is to ensure that pay reflects performance. Our principles are to pay our staff a fair salary that is competitive with the charity sector, proportionate to the complexity of each role and responsibility and in line with our charitable objectives.

Through further analysis it is apparent that our slight increase in the mean gender pay gap is a result of family commitments. We remain confident that the gender pay gap does not stem from paying men and women differently for the same or equivalent work.
