Momentum Instore support the UK government’s leadership in gender equality, and the requirement for companies to publish their data.
We are committed to ensuring our people are treated equally at work, across all levels and locations. This includes making sure they have the same opportunities for recognition, reward and career development, irrespective of gender, age, race, religion, belief, sexual orientation or disability. After all, we wouldn’t be where we are without our brilliant diverse teams.
We’ve worked hard with our leadership teams to provide consistency and transparency within our pay decision-making process, to ensure decisions are made based on market data and role performance and we are confident that we have equal pay.
As you’ll see from our results in this report, we do have a gender pay gap, however this gap is not a pay equality issue as we pay our employees and workers according to their role and not their gender. Our findings show that our gender pay gap is due to the structure of our organisation and the unequal distribution of men and women across the company. For example, like many companies, men occupy more of our senior manager roles with larger salaries and bonus potential. In addition to this, the majority of the people included in our calculations are intermittent workers whose pay is an hourly rate fixed by our clients (lowest paid roles) and occupied mostly by men. Understanding the gender pay gap drives us to do more and we are committed to improving the gender balance of our employees and workers.
We remain committed to attracting and retaining the very best talent to the business and ensuring gender is never a factor in decisions and will continue to have a culture that values the fantastic contribution that both men and women make to our business. We will use the figures from the gender pay gap in line with our recruitment and progression planning procedures to ensure that action is taken to reduce gaps going forwards in line with our aim for everyone at our company to build and sustain a successful career with us.
I confirm the gender pay gap data contained in this report for Momentum Instore is accurate as of the snapshot date 5 April 2022.
