Summary Statement

The gender pay gap among full-time employees in April 2020 stands at 7.4% which is down from 9% in April 2019 the Office for National Statistics (ONS) has reported. This means, the average female full-time employee now earns 7.4% less than the average man. They also reported that the gender pay gap among all employee was 15.5% in 2020, down from 17.4% in 2019.

It is important to note here that Dermalogica UK Ltd did not participate in the governments furlough scheme therefore all employees were working on the snapshot date.

Mean pay

Our mean pay gap of 41.8% means we have had a significant increase from the previous year, this was expected due a new male employee joining the business during 2019 at the most senior level within the UK business. We also saw some internal moves within the business and some new male employees joining the business in high salary roles.

Median pay

This has also impacted our median gender pay gap. This has moved from -13.7% in 2019 to 4.5% for 2020. We still have considerably more female employees than male employees but with the change at top management level and some other new males joining in high salary roles we have seen the impact here as well.

    Mean and Median Bonus

    The average male bonus is higher than the average female bonus and has increased compared to last year. This is influenced upwards in the statistics by the highest bonused employee being our General Manager who is male and by other new senior team members who are also male having joined the business. However the median bonus is not much higher for males compared to females.

    Population % by Pay Quartiles

    This identifies the proportions of males and females in each pay quartile. Whilst female employees make up 86.5% of the workforce, there is not a consistent 90-10 equal demographic in each quartile.

    The majority of female employees sit in the middle two quartiles of pay and occupy 8 of the top 14 roles by base pay. Male employees are more represented in the lower and upper quartiles.
