Ensuring pay equity

Through our market-based pay structure and annual pay equity reviews, we’re confident that our employees are paid equitably. We examine base salary, on-target earnings and annual stock refresh grants to pay according to the market value of every job. This helps us reduce unconscious bias and structural barriers. Our reviews consistently reveal no disparities for over 99 percent of our workforce.

“Equity is not easy to achieve – it requires acknowledging differences, understanding history and many other considerations. Equity is worth the effort, because everyone should enjoy the chance to contribute and succeed”

Carin Taylor, Chief Diversity Officer, Workday

Understanding the gender pay gap

We recognise that ‘pay gap’ and ‘pay equity’ are two different things. Unlike pay gap calculations, pay equity compares individuals by job roles – comparing equal pay for equal work. The gender pay gap, as outlined by the UK Government, is the difference in the average hourly wage of all men and women across a workforce regardless of their job or their level of responsibility.

Continuing the journey

Closing the gender pay gap is an ongoing journey, and it’s a goal we’re committed to. The number of women in our global leadership team is testament to this. Every organisation including ourselves must continue to promote, encourage and develop female talent to drive lasting change in the technology sector. At the same time, organisations need to show that people are salaried, bonused and rewarded in an equitable way, regardless of gender. Pay equity is crucial as we push to close the gender pay gap.

You can learn more about our commitment to diversity and inclusion in our Global Impact Report or on our blog.

Our 2023 UK gender pay gap results

 

 

 

Our biggest opportunity to reduce the gender pay gap continues to be through increasing the representation of women, especially in sales and in more senior-level roles. We’re not yet reflective of pay equity, but by pushing forward-thinking and gender-equal recruitment policies, we're fully committed to improving our gender pay gap.

The gender pay gap: The gender pay gap is the difference between the average (mean or median) earnings of men and women. This is expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings.

The mean gender pay gap: This calculation requires an employer to show the difference between the mean hourly rate of pay that male and female full-pay relevant employees receive.

The median gender pay gap:This calculation requires an employer to show the difference between the median hourly rate of pay that male and female full-pay relevant employees receive.

The mean bonus gender pay gap: This calculation requires an employer to show the difference between the mean bonus pay that male and female employees receive.

The median bonus gender pay gap: This calculation requires an employer to show the difference between the median bonus pay that male and female employees receive.

The proportion of males and females receiving a bonus payment: These two calculations require an employer to show the proportion of male relevant employees who were paid any amount of bonus pay, and the proportion of female relevant employees who were paid any amount of bonus pay.

The proportion of males and females in each quartile pay band: This calculation requires an employer to show the proportions of male and female full-pay relevant employees in four quartile pay bands. This is done by dividing the workforce into four equal parts. These quartile pay bands are established when making the calculation, so any other pay banding used in a workplace must not be used.
