Keltbray commit to gender equality and diversity
Company says nearly a fifth of its workforce are women in latest Gender Pay Gap Report
KELTBRAY, UK specialists in construction, demolition, decommissioning, and remediation services, have increased their female workforce by 19% and the number of women in their highest paid quartile of workers by 4% during 2021.
These were some of the key findings of the company’s latest Gender Pay Gap Report, which shows how men and women’s average pay compares across the organization. It is a requirement for UK companies employing 250 or more people to report this information.
While there was a 4% drop in Keltbray’s mean gender pay gap since 2017, women now make up almost one in five of the company’s workforce. The report also showed that Keltbray’s mean hourly rate gap had increased by nearly 3%, and mean bonus gap by almost 9%.
Darren James, chief executive officer of Keltbray, commented: ‘Although our results show we have a way to go in closing our gender pay gap, we are pleased to see that we are gradually increasing the number of women we employ, and we are seeing more women in senior positions.
‘However, we understand that like many others in the industry we are on an inclusion journey and with this in mind, we want to build on our progress each year and hold ourselves to account on our inclusion performance.’
Keltbray’s group people director Kyla Farmer added: ‘Our results show that whilst change is happening, we are still on a journey and it’s going to take time. The formation of our inclusion committee and the appointment of an inclusion manager was an important step forward in our inclusion journey, and the steps we take over the next few months will be crucial in creating real, lasting change.’
