J Marr Limited fully support the Government’s initiative to have UK businesses publish their Gender Pay Gap to support the principles of pay equality.
The Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) regulations 2017 expect employers to comply with the regulations for any year where they have a headcount of 250 or more employees on the snapshot date.
J Marr Limited is required to publish an annual gender pay report as of the snapshot date of 5th April 2017.
Our gender demographic is in line with other businesses in the manufacturing, storage or distribution sectors with 78% male and 22% female. Our gender pay analysis shows that this demographic is reflected throughout all pay quartiles within J Marr Limited.
The company is pleased to report that our aim for pay equality is reflected in our median gender pay gap of 1.3%, which is significantly lower than the Office for National Statistics 2017 UK Whole Economy median gender pay gap of 18.4%.
Our mean gender pay gap shows that overall, female workers are paid 4.7% more than male workers. We believe this is due to the differing roles that men and women undertake within J Marr Limited and is based on the pay those differing roles attract and is not a result of unfair pay practices.
As a company, we recognise that continual improvement is important. As such, the company carries out regular pay and benefits reviews and evaluates pay structures to aim for equality across the workforce.
J Marr Limited is committed to the principle of Equal Opportunity in employment. Our overall aim is to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted, paid and generally treated on the basis of their relevant aptitude, skills and abilities. J Marr Limited is committed to being a company in which the quality of opportunity is a reality where every individual can seek, obtain and continue employment without unfair treatment or discrimination.
