Welcome to our latest UK Gender Pay Gap Report comparing pay and bonus data for Accolade Wines employees in the UK.
Accolade Wines is fully committed to gender equity and providing equal opportunities to all of our employees regardless of their background or circumstances.
Accolade knows that a diverse and inclusive work environment creates a collaborative culture and improves performance. Our employees are supported and provided with equal access to career opportunities, training and benefits. This assists us to maximise the potential in our people through continuous growth and development.
Accolade Wines is committed to developing a diverse workforce and has procedures in place to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on recruitment, selection, training, promotion and career management are based solely on objective and job-related criteria.
The company recognizes the under-representation of women in senior roles and has taken steps to address this.
By using positive role modelling this has assisted us in bringing people together to create change, working together as one business to deliver practical solutions. We respond quickly when it’s urgent and commit to our course of action when taking on challenges.
We are attracting talent from a range of sources now including direct recruitment, allowing us to attract a diverse range of applicants.
In managing this internally we are able to track the diversity of our candidate pools. Having adopted a structured approach to recruitment this has allowed us to manage the selection criteria more effectively, ensuring there is a balanced approach.
We have appointed more females into senior roles within the business in 2019 and will continue in 2020. This is both from external to the business and also through internal promotions.
As the success of these initiatives bears fruit, we are confident of encouraging greater diversity throughout the organisation.
I confirm that this data is accurate as of the snapshot date of 5 April 2019.
