Gender Pay Gap (2020)
Gender Pay Gap reporting legislation requires companies with 250 or more employees to publish statutory calculations every year showing the pay gap between their male and female colleagues.
The Gender Pay Gap shows the difference in average pay between all men and women in a workforce, regardless of their role. Therefore, it should not be confused with Equal Pay which looks at salaries for men and women who carry out the same or similar roles in an organisation.
At Blue Apple we believe in creating a diverse and gender balanced workforce reflecting our clients and customers at our sites across the UK. We believe in job opportunities for everyone, regardless of gender. We continue to challenge ourselves to be more inclusive across our business and look to champion the hospitality industry as a career choice for everyone.
As an independent contract catering business we have been hit hard by the recent pandemic and our workforce has reduced significantly. As we look to grow our business for the future we have a great opportunity to focus on attracting, developing and retaining more females in our Chef roles which have typically been held by males.
Our Gender Pay Gap has closed from the last time we reported in 2019 with a mean gap of 18% and median of 29%.
Our commitment to closing this gap further is supported by our Senior Management Team and driven by our CEO.
