Understanding the Gap

The analysis of the gender gap figures tells us that women hold fewer senior positions within the company.  Women make up 40.4% of the workforce but only 8.14% of these are in the upper quartile.  Bonus payments are predominately paid to senior managers and sales managers where there is a lower proportion of women, giving rise to the gap in bonus payments.

The company operates an equal opportunities policy for all recruitment with the aim of recruiting the strongest candidate for the position.  The environment we adhere to is for all staff to reach their full potential with an equal opportunity policy and process towards all aspects of training, promotion, succession and recruitment.


I confirm that Pyronix Gender Pay Gap calculations are accurate and meet the requirements of the Regulations.
