Commentary

  • The gender pay gap at Frosts, as at April 2018, continues to relate entirely to the top quartile earnings group.
  • There is no median pay gap and the mean pay gap remains materially unchanged at c.9%.
  • There was no median bonus gap and the reported mean bonus gap is a statistical distortion resulting from a relatively large bonus paid to a single male member of staff during a year when only 9% of total staff received bonuses.
  • The ratio of female to male employees remained unchanged versus the previous year at 64:36 however the percentage of females in the top earnings quartile increased from 52% to 56%.
  • There are no differences in pay rates at any level for different genders occupying equivalent roles.
  • Frosts continues to actively promote flexible working which we believe is essential to making us a more attractive and equal opportunities employer.
