Gender pay gap report

An equitable employment experience is fundamental in order for GMS to attract and retain a suitably skilled and experienced workforce to deliver its business plan objectives and to become a local employer of choice.

Key points

In line with the legislative requirement to publish raw data to demonstrate the Gender Pay Gap for GMS, this is the first Gender Pay Gap report for Gloucestershire Managed Services (GMS) and the data set used for this report, as determined by national reporting requirements, is extracted from 31 March 2019. The analysis undertaken highlighted the following:

  • There were 689 reported staff with a near 50/50 male/female split

The measured position on the gender pay gap as at 31 March 2019 is:

  • Mean gender pay gap, 7.32% in favour of male employees
  • Median gender pay gap, 2.50% in favour of male employees

This report establishes GMS’s commitment to Gender Equality and its approach to ensuring its aims to maintain and increase high levels of gender pay equality within GMS.

The principles contained within this report will provide a framework for all staff which will facilitate the development of gender pay equality and ensure all staff are aware of the GMS aims and objectives in regard to becoming a local employer of choice.

This policy should be read in conjunction with other related policies and forms an integral part of the GMS’s approach to Workforce Management.
