Ratio of basic salary and remuneration of women to men
We are determined to provide a fair, equal and inclusive environment for all of our people, whether they are male or female. As well as taking action at a Group level to address the historic under-representation of women, each of our businesses are developing specific plans to help us close their gender pay gap.
We are taking a number of actions to attract, retain and progress female talent at all levels of our organisation – from encouraging girls to see STEM as a future career, to increasing the number of women on our graduate and apprentice programmes and working with organisations such as the Women’s Engineering Society to help support women returning to the sector after a career break.
Further detail and our published data can be found in the Social – People and potential section on page 73 of our Annual Report.
