The Gender Pay Gap refers to the difference between the average pay of all men and the average pay of all women. We look at both the mean average and the median average to analyse this. We can report a reduction in our mean gender pay gap, from 20.2% in 2018 to 17.9% in 2019, while our median gender pay gap has increased from 25.7% in 2018 to 15% in 2019.
Like many technology companies, we have more men than women in Senior and technical roles in our business, which is what drives our Gender Pay Gap. To tackle this we committed to a long-term goal of filling our non-entry-level roles through internal promotions and doing so using a clean, bias-free and open selection process.
As a result in 2019 56% of our non-entry level roles were filled through internal promotions, of these, 30% were female.
We remain focused on positive action to reduce our gender pay gap and in 2020 Advanced will demonstrate the results of our 2019 Action Plan. We look forward to reporting positive actions regarding; Maternity, Hiring Processes, Internal Mobility and Celebrating our successes when it comes to diversity.
