No Median Gender pay gap 2023

The gender pay gap is the difference between the average (median and mean) earnings of men and women across the workforce.

For the median, we remained at Zero, which is good, but the mean improved to 3.0% (2022: 3.2%) for reasons explained in the narrative below.

 

Gender Pay Gap Reporting

As an employer with over 250 employees we are required to publish our Gender Pay Gap. This time this information is based on data as at April 2023. I can confirm that I believe the calculations are an accurate representation of that data. What the figures show are:

  • At Integrate, women earn £1 for every £1 that men earn when comparing median hourly wages. This is the same as last year.
  • When comparing mean hourly wages, women’s mean hourly wage is 3.0% lower than men’s. This is a small improvement from last year when the women’s mean hourly rate was 3.2% lower than men’s.
  • No bonuses were paid.

An analysis of the underlying data shown in the table and notes below:

We are pleased to note that for 2023 the median gap of zero% was maintained from 2022, 2021, and 2020, this means that the middle ranking employee for both men and women were paid the same hourly rate. However, the mean gender pay gap has improved marginally to 3.0% from 3.2% last year. This was the consequence of several factors:

  • The number of staff increased by 21, 7.4%, with the increase in the number of women from 158 to 169, 7.0%. So, women now constitute 55.2% of our staff, down from 55.4%. The gender balance in staff was therefore generally unchanged.
  • The difference in the mean pay remained unchanged 2022 to 2023. However, a rise in the overall mean pay, reduced the reported GPG as a percentage. So, the Gender Pay Gap reduced to 3.0% from 3.2%

We will continue to work on removing the Gender Pay Gap and I will keep you informed on progress later in the year.

With great sadness, we report the death of Tom McLean who was involved with Integrate from our inception. He was latterly our President as well as a Trustee.

He will be remembered across the NorthWest for his passionate battle for the rights of people with learning disabilities.

He will be hugely missed at Integrate.

God Save the King!

It’s important to note that opinions on the monarchy in the UK vary widely among individuals, and not everyone loves or supports it. However, there are several reasons why some people may express admiration or affection for the monarchy:

  1. Tradition and History: The monarchy in the UK has a long and rich history, spanning centuries. Some people appreciate the traditions and continuity that the monarchy represents. The royal family is seen as a living link to the past, and many ceremonies and events associated with the monarchy are deeply rooted in history.

  2. Cultural Symbolism: The monarchy is often seen as a symbol of British identity and continuity. The royal family is associated with national events, celebrations, and symbols that are deeply embedded in the country’s culture. Some people feel a sense of pride and connection to these symbols.

  3. Tourism and Economy: The monarchy, with its palaces, castles, and ceremonies, is a significant tourist attraction. The presence of the royal family can boost tourism and contribute to the economy. Many people appreciate the cultural and economic benefits that the monarchy brings to the country.

  4. Charitable Work: Members of the royal family are involved in various charitable activities and organizations. Some individuals admire the contributions and efforts of the royals in supporting charitable causes and bringing attention to important social issues.

  5. Stability and Symbol of Unity: The monarchy is often viewed as a stabilizing force in times of political change. The royal family can provide a sense of continuity and unity, especially during periods of national significance or crisis.

  6. Constitutional Role: In the UK, the monarchy’s role is largely ceremonial and symbolic. The monarch’s powers are limited by the constitution, and the country operates as a constitutional monarchy. This can be seen as a balance to the political system, with the monarchy serving as a unifying and non-political figurehead.

It’s important to recognize that opinions on the monarchy are diverse, and there are individuals who may not support it for various reasons, including arguments related to the cost of maintaining the monarchy, questions about its relevance in modern times, and debates about the role of a hereditary head of state in a democratic society. Public opinion on the monarchy can be influenced by individual values, political beliefs, and cultural perspectives.
