Under new legislation that came into force in April 2017, UK employers with more than 250 employees are required to report their gender pay gap, something that T-Systems has embraced. We have put plans in place to review this on an ongoing basis and to be open with our data.
The gender pay gap is the pay discrepancy between men and women irrespective of their job or position. It gives a snapshot of the gender balance within an organisation and measures the difference between the average earnings of all male and female employees, irrespective of their role or seniority.
It is different from equal pay - when companies are required to ensure that men and women carrying out the same or similar roles are paid the same work they do.
How is T-Systems Limited doing?
Our reported figures, based on April 2017 data, show a Gender Pay Gap of 26.7%. Since April last year we have put in place a number of initiatives to help reduce our Gender Pay Gap, which you can see under our action plan. We re-analysed the data at the end of 2017 and we can see the results have reduced to a gap of 22.7%.
Our aim is for everyone at T-Systems to be able to build and sustain a successful career. We believe this requires a combination of deliberate actions and ensuring that we provide an inclusive and diverse culture in a flexible environment for our people to operate in.
What is T-Systems Limited doing?
We have developed a clear action plan to take us up to 2020 with specific initiatives that will help close the Gender Pay Gap further and create a diverse and inclusive culture. These include:
- Attracting and hiring more women into our business, through inclusive bias-free recruitment and promotion practices
- Building an inclusive culture where all our people can be completely themselves and succeed in partnership with our Diversi-T Community
- Enabling more women to progress to senior management levels through mentoring, coaching sponsorship, training and development programmes with a bias-free internal mobility processes
- Inspiring next generation into tech through the Modern Muse programme and sponsorship of the Rising Star Awards through the Everywoman Partnership
