Gender pay Gap: Policy statement April 2021 21/02/2022
At Adventure Travel we believe in promoting equality and diversity amongst our workforce and are committed to rewarding our people fairly, irrespective of gender.
The figures calculated for our business continue to show a gender pay gap that is significantly lower than the UK National Average of 15.4% for all employees and 7.9% for full-time employees. The national figures were compiled from the latest update from the Office for National Statistics.
Average Hourly pay rates
As Adventure Travel employs over 250 people, we are required under the 'Equality Act 2010 (Gender pay gap information) Regulations 2017' to publish the difference in the average (Mean and Median) gender pay gaps as this is a good indication of how salaries of men and women are spread throughout the organization. These are calculated as of April 2021, as follows:
Why is there a gap?
Transport is a male-dominated industry that typically sees more men than women in front line roles, particularly in driving and engineering. The sheer number of drivers as a proportion of the workforce of our business means that this male-dominated grade features in all quartiles. However, as of April 2021, 12% of staff at Adventure Travel were female, compared with only 8% the previous year, resulting in an overall reduction in the Mean gender pay gap to 0.6%, from 2.4% in 2020.
Hourly pay Quartiles
This shows the proportion of males and females in four pay bands arranged from the highest to the lowest:
Adventure Travel continues to be committed to paying all of our staff fairly, irrespective of gender, and to closing the gender pay gap that exists in our workforce caused by a disproportionate number of male staff throughout the business. We continue to actively encourage new female recruits in all areas of the business.
