Closing the gap: Newcross publishes second gender pay gap report

Newcross Healthcare is an employer required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Finance has completed and released the report, which shows our gender split is reasonably consistent through the organisation and that our results for the lower and lower middle quartile have improved upon last year. 

What is the gender pay gap?

The gender pay gap measures the difference between men and women’s earnings across the business by expressing women’s pay as a percentage of men’s pay. This is different to equal pay. Equal pay refers to men and women receiving equal pay for equal work.

Newcross's Gender Pay Gap Report 

The mean gender pay gap at Newcross Healthcare Solutions is negative 0.2%, meaning the average female staff hourly rate at Newcross is 0.2% more per hour than the average of male staff members. This is significantly below that of the national average* (17.1% higher for men). As is reflected across the wider health and social care sector, Newcross Healthcare Solutions employs more women than men, with a 78% female workforce.
