The Gender Pay Gap

The gender pay gap is the difference in average pay between the men and women in the organisation’s workforce.

All organisations within the United Kingdom with more than 250 employees have been required since April 2017 to publish details of their gender pay gap. The specific requirements of the Equality Act 2010 Act (Gender Pay Gap Regulations 20170 are to publish information for six specific measures.

Staffordshire CCGs combined staff totals above 250 personnel, therefore, if publishing joint information around gender equality, Staffordshire CCGs would be required to publish gender pay gap information against the six calculations below:

  • mean gender pay gap in hourly pay
  • median gender pay gap in hourly pay
  • mean bonus gender pay gap
  • median bonus gender pay gap
  • proportion of males and females receiving a bonus payment
  • proportion of males and females in each pay quartile

Mean is the average hourly rate of pay, calculated by adding the hourly pay rate for employees then dividing by the number of employees.

Median is the middle hourly pay rate, when you arrange your pay rates in order from lowest to highest.
