Accolade Wines employee base in the UK
Accolade Wines is a global employer, with over 1400 people worldwide and 479 employees in the UK.
The gender split of our non-industrial workforce is 53% male, 47% female. However, within our industrial workforce, the gender split is predominantly male at 97%. This impacts our overall gender split at 73% male, 27% female representation.
Difference in Mean and Median Hourly Pay
Our mean and median hourly pay gap data in 2020 both state that females were paid more than males. These numbers reflect the size of our predominantly male industrial workforce and women in more commercial and higher paid positions. The mean gender hourly pay gap for Accolade Wines is -6.38%
- The median gender pay gap for Accolade Wines is -23.1%
Difference in Mean and Median Bonus
The fluctuation in the payment of bonuses is impacted by several internal and external factors, including payment of pro-rata bonuses for new employees and newly promoted employees, under representation of females at senior levels and impact of company and divisional performance. Bonus payments are not adjusted for part time employees, where females are over-represented compared to males.
- The mean gender pay gap using bonus pay for Accolade Wines is 49.41%
- The median gender pay gap using bonus pay for Accolade Wines is 39.01%
Proportion of male and female employees who received bonus pay
The proportion of females receiving a bonus payment is higher than males as it reflects the large proportion of male employees in our industrial workforce, who do not participate in any bonus scheme.
Proportion of women and men according to quartile pay bands
This metric segments males and females into four equal pay quartiles with 120 employees in each quartile. Our data is consistent across all our four quartiles reflecting our gender pay gap.
I confirm that the data reported is accurate as of 5 April 2020.
At Accolade, we are committed to consistent review of our data and initiatives to support gender equity across roles, responsibilities and pay. Our people are at the heart of what we do and we are currently developing a new Diversity, Equity & Inclusion strategy which will incorporate our plans to manage gender equality.
