McBurney Transport Group Limited welcomes the government’s Gender Pay Gap Reporting initiative, as a method of seeking to promote and deliver equality in the workplace.

As an employer of more than 250 employees in the UK, we are required to carry out Gender Pay Gap Reporting for those employees in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017. We confirm that the data reported is accurate.

Gender Pay Gap

Hourly pay
There is a positive differential of 1.2% where the mean hourly rate reported for women is higher than the men’s mean hourly rate.

The median hourly rate for men is 6.4% higher than the women’s median hourly rate.

Bonus Pay
The mean bonus pay for men was 15.3% higher than women and the median bonus pay for men was 7.8% higher than women.  Only the company’s HGV drivers participate in a drivers bonus scheme, of which only 1.79% were women. This bonus scheme is offered equally to all HGV drivers regardless of gender and the disparity in bonus pay is connected to the majority of our driving workforce being male.

Proportion of women in each pay quartile

The figures reported confirm that there is a disparity between the number of females employed in each pay quartile in comparison to men.

This is strongly influenced by the fact that the majority of our employees in the UK, 89.03% are HGV drivers, warehouse operatives, transport operatives & mechanics 97.4% of which are male. While we are an equal opportunities employer, unfortunately there are very few female applicants to these types of vacancies.

While this disparity is reflected across the transport and logistics sector generally, we are committed to continuing to assess our recruitment and promotion exercises at all levels within our business, to ensure equal treatment of individuals, regardless of gender.
