Gender Pay Reporting – EYMS Group Limited

Drivers in an EYMS bus

EYMS Group Limited employs over 700 people and almost all of them are employed in East Yorkshire Motor Services Ltd. By law it is required to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

The key reporting requirements of this legislation are to provide statistics for the following:

  1. General pay gap (GPG) – pay mean and median
  2. Quartile analysis – male and female.
  3. Bonus pay – mean and median
  4. Bonus eligibility – male and female

The data used for this exercise is that for the relevant employees at 5 April 2017.

The calculations can be used to assess the levels of gender equality in the company and the balance of male and female employees at different levels

Workforce Composition

Male Female Total
Total Employees 611 103 714

EYMS is a public transport operator and the majority of its workforce are drivers and engineers, traditionally areas that did not attract female applicants and this is reflected in the composition of our workforce.

GPG Pay Mean and Median

Pay Male Female Difference
Mean 9.72 9.28 4.74%
Median 9.15 9.15 0.00%

Quartile Analysis Male and Female

Pay Male Female Male Female
Lower (0-25%) 138 35 79.77% 20.23%
Lower Middle (25-50%) 159 15 91.38% 8.62%
Upper Middle (50-75%) 151 23 86.78% 13.22%
Upper (75-100%) 148 25 85.55% 14.45%
  596 98    

Like many traditional industries we have a lower proportion of females employed in our senior roles and hence the upper pay quartile and this is the main driver of the gender pay gap.

Bonus Pay Mean and Median

Bonus Male Female Difference
Mean 0.00 0.00 0.00%
Median 0.00 0.00 0.00%
Number Receiving Bonus 0 0  
Percentage Receiving Bonus 0.00% 0.00%  

BONUS ELIGIBILITY: No bonuses are paid which fall under the definition of such in the legislation.

The above figures have been extracted from our April 2017 payroll and ranked according to pay and gender to calculate the figures shown.

I have examined the data and supporting workings and am satisfied that they fulfil the reporting requirements of the GPR legislation.
