Pepper Advantage UK remains committed to fairness, inclusion and opportunity, irrespective of gender. We take this focus beyond just the annual pay gap reporting… it is fundamental to our Culture.
Gender pay gap reporting continues to help us to review how we ensure that our people are at the heart of our strategic plans. It has enabled us to review external trends whilst considering the key skills essential for continuous success, both at individual and company-wide level.
Since our last gender pay gap report, we have continued to improve the gender imbalance in senior leadership roles and senior technical hires. We are especially pleased to have maintained 50% female representation on the PA UK Executive team, significantly higher than the average for financial services in the UK. Additionally, 42% of all our leadership positions are held by women. This is increasing year on year.
We continue to positively reinforce opportunities and equality within our business, through our Diversity and Inclusion Committee and continued membership of the Women in Finance Charter, having met our targets three years running. We have continued to enhance our benefits package with particular focus on families and looking after our people during the current economic challenges, including additional benefits to support colleagues who are attending the office more frequently.
Some of the key enhancements we offer include:
Since the last gender pay report, our business has grown by over 25%. Pepper Advantage UK continues to ensure that all employees are selected and appropriately compensated in their roles based on their skills, abilities and performance alone, without regard to their gender.
