Gender Pay Gap

At Southern Cross Care, we're dedicated to fostering an inclusive workplace where everyone is valued and compensated fairly, regardless of gender.

The recent report from Workplace Gender Equality Agency (WGEA) on gender pay gaps among 5,000 private sector employers shows our gender pay gap at just 2.5%, well below the national average of 21.7% and within WGEA’s target range.

Southern Cross Care commits to undertake the following initiatives:

Transparent Compensation Practices: We will work to maintain transparency in our compensation framework, regularly reviewing it to detect and address any discrepancies in pay based on gender.

Equal Opportunities:We offer equal opportunities for career advancement, professional growth, and promotions, solely determined by merit and qualifications, without any influence of gender bias.

Education and Training: We commit to providing continuous training and educational initiatives to increase awareness of gender biases, empowering our employees to identify and address these issues within our workplace.

Supportive Policies: We consistently evaluate and enhance our policies and procedures to uphold fairness and equity across all facets of employment, encompassing recruitment, salary evaluations, and benefits.

Accountability and Measurement: We are committed to establishing measurable goals and holding ourselves accountable by consistently assessing our progress in closing any gender pay disparity.

Inclusive Culture: We are dedicated to fostering an inclusive culture that appreciates diverse viewpoints, ensuring every employee feels valued, respected, and empowered to contribute their best.

This commitment is an ongoing journey, and we recognise that effort and collaboration are essential for making meaningful change and sustaining progress. Our aspiration is to create a workplace where every individual, irrespective of gender, feels valued and fairly compensated for their contributions.
