As part of the Government’s commitment to tackling gender inequality, UK companies with over 250 employees are required by law to publish calculations every year showing the pay gap between male and female employees. At Yours Clothing, we value inclusion and strive for equality and fairness for each and every team member.
Yours Clothing is 96.2% female with the majority of roles in our stores. This is due to us being largely recognised as a women’s fashion retailer and we attract mainly female applicants to work in our stores. However, the male staff we do have in our stores are paid equally to our female staff, and we are confident that our gender pay gap is as a result of the roles in which men and women work within the organisation and the salaries that these roles attract.
The following information is accurate as of the snapshot date of 5 April 2017, and shows our overall mean and median gender pay gap and bonus pay gap based on hourly rates of pay.
The table below shows the percentage difference in overall mean and median pay and bonus between men and women:
|Hourly Pay Gap||56%||42%|
|Bonus Pay Gap||81%||17%|
Out of a total of 946 employees, 147 employees received a bonus payment. This is due to the bonus having mainly been paid to store employees for the snapshot period and is largely based on store performance.
|Percentage of Females who received Bonus||16%|
|Percentage of Males who received Bonus||8%|
We have divided our employees into four equal-sized pay quartiles and shown below the percentage of males and females in each quartile.
There are 204 people employed in our Head Office and Warehouse, 33 of which are male and 171 female. Our Senior Management team is 44% female. Any gender pay gap that exists is a result of differentiating roles and not due to any variance in pay for like for like roles.
We are committed to reducing our gender pay gap and will continue to focus on women having the same opportunities for senior roles as men.
Going forward we will continue to support men and women to develop to the best of their potential.
I can confirm that the information contained within this report is accurate.
