As a Times Top 50 Employer for Women and one of the first to publish their gender pay gap report, we remain committed to closing the gender pay gap and creating a truly inclusive culture at Capgemini.
Since officially reporting our gender pay gap on 5th September 2017, our analysis shows that when we calculated the overall difference between men and women’s earnings, the mean gap has decreased from 19.4% in April 2017 to 18.2% in April 2018 and the median gap has increased from 17% in April 2017 to 18.7% in April 2018.
Like many other companies in our industry, our gap is primarily caused by having fewer women in senior grades and highly paid technical roles. When we compare pay for equal or similar work across our organisation, the gap is significantly lower at 1.6%.
While we have some way to go, since our last report we have reached equal representation on our Capgemini UK PLC Board of Directors, launched a successful Returners programme with hires made across a range of grades, seen a 12% pts increase in female promotions in senior grades and over 47% in fast-track leadership programmes (entry-senior level) are women.
Our aim is to achieve year on year improvement in our gender pay gap. Through our comprehensive programme of actions, we will continue to embed the spirit of diversity and inclusion at the very heart of our organisation – and in time, we will close the gender pay gap.
