CDS is committed to providing equal opportunities to all of its employees. Our priority is, and will continue to be, focusing on having a motivated and diverse talent pool, which reflects the ethics of our organisation.
Our Gender Pay Gap figures at a glance:
Proportion of employees who received a bonus in the 12 months to 5 April 2020:
45 % Female
43 % Male
In 2020 we saw an overall increase in the proportion of female employees in the organisation, with a marginal growth of 4%.
We are also pleased to report than we have had an exponential increase in women receiving bonuses since 2018, with the figures rising from 19% in 2018 to 35% in 2019, and 45% of females receiving a bonus in 2020. Furthermore, a proportionally higher percentage of female employees were awarded bonuses: 43% of men received a bonus last year, against the figure of 45% for women.
The median bonus gap has also been in favour of women since 2017, with the latest figures reporting -13.1%. Hence, evidencing for a higher median size of bonus payment received by our female staff than that of male employees.
The data also reflects the challenges many High Tech companies face, due to the relatively low female representation in industry. This has had a significant impact on the reported results, as the data is based on an overwhelming majority of male employees.
In 2020 CDS UK had a mean Gender Pay Gap of 33.3%, with a median remaining static from 2019 to 2020 at 41.3%.
CDS remains committed to being an equal opportunities employer through developing, supporting and retaining diverse talents.
In order to honour our commitment, in 2021 our focus will be on:
- Development and career progression programmes (STEP and LEAD)
- Promoting the career pathways available across the organisation
- Continuation of our Wellness@CDS programme
- Investing in training and adoption of the latest technology for enterprise communication, collaboration and increased productivity
- Expanding our recruitment channels through the use of social media
As part of the worldwide group of Hewlett Packard Enterprise companies, we also ensure full compliance to the HPE Standards of Business Conduct, which supports the retention and inclusiveness of a diverse workforce.
