Gender Pay Gap Report

Person responsible for our Gender Pay Gap reporting: 

Ms Claire Bayliss, CEO, Kennelpak Ltd, Palmer Drive, Stapleford, Nottingham, NG9 7BW.

Our written statement:

We have to report certain calculations regarding our Gender Pay Gap at the “snapshot date” of 5th April 2022. The figures reported are a true and accurate representation at this date.

What we calculated:

The MEAN hourly rate is the average hourly wage earned across the entire organisation. The mean gender hourly pay gap is a measure of the difference between women’s mean hourly wage and men’s mean hourly wage.

The MEDIAN hourly rate is calculated by ranking all employees highest to lowest paid and taking the hourly wage of the person in the middle, so the MEDIAN gender pay gap is the difference between the women’s median hourly wage (the middle-paid women) and men’s median hourly wage (the middle-paid man).

What this tells us:

Women’s MEAN hourly rate in our Organisation is 31.1% lower than men’s. In other words when comparing the mean hourly rates women earn 68.9p for every £1 that men earn.

This is comparable with our performance on the snapshot date in 2021. Improvements have taken place in the last 12 months to address this. Work continues to ensure we deliver improvements.

Women’s MEDIAN hourly rate is 0.5% lower than the men’s. In other words when comparing median hourly rates women earn 99.5p for every £1 men earn. 

This is an improvement of 1.9% vs the snapshot date in 2021.

About our Organisation: Percentage of Women and Men employed by quartile:

Top Quartile: Women 59.7% / Men 40.3%
Upper Middle Quartile: Women 78.9% / Men 21.1%
Lower Middle Quartile: Women 78.9% / Men 21.1%
Bottom Quartile: Women 81.9% / Men 18.1%

Our part time, flexible contracts suit the home-life balance of working parents regardless of their gender. 

Bonus Pay Gap:

Our Mean Bonus Pay Gap is 70.9% lower for Women than Men. Here a lack of female representation at the mid-manager and senior manager level (where earnings and bonuses are available) is impacting on our mean bonus pay gap.   

Our Median Bonus Pay Gap is 44.8% lower for women than men, an improvement of 19.2% vs the snapshot in 2021. For context 61.5% of all employees qualified for a bonus. This is an increase of 8.8% vs the 2021 snapshot. Of the 61.5% who were eligible for a bonus 60.7% of all women, and 63.9% of all men received a bonus payment in the financial year up to the snapshot date.
