Gender Pay Gap Report

The UK Government has introduced new reporting regulations under the Equality Act 2010 requiring companies with over 250 employees to disclose their gender pay gap annually from April 2017.

'Equal Pay' is about a man and a woman receiving equal pay for the same or similar job.

Proseal's gender pay gap is strongly influenced by the industry, with the senior engineers and designers in the business being male. We actively encourage and have current female engineering apprentices within the business.

We are confident that men and women are paid equally for doing equivalent jobs across our business.

This report displays our results in the year to April 2017

Proportion of colleagues awarded a bonus for 2016


 This shows an 8% difference between the number of men and women being paid a bonus in December 2016 who were employed at the snap shot date of the 5th April. The variance is driven by a number of women being employed after the bonus payment date but included in the snap shot data.


Pay Quartiles


The above illustrates the gender distribution at Proseal UK Ltd across four equally sized quartiles, each containing 67 colleagues.


How Proseal is tackling its gender pay gap

While we don't have an equal pay issue for individuals carrying out the same role, we will be mindful of the pay gap which is driven by the senior team being male.

We will continue to actively encourage female applicants into our apprenticeship scheme, and hope that careers in engineering become more attractive to females to increase applicants in future years. As the business continues to grow additional support function roles will be required, these will draw applicants from less male dominated careers and could increase the female representation at senior level.

An initiative for 2018 will be to launch a mentoring programme for the 'women of Proseal' to ensure we support their career progression and aspirations.
