Under the statutory requirements we are required to report gender pay gap figures for our main employing entity – Genesis Cancer Care UK Limited.  The data illustrates our gender pay gap as at 5th April 2021.  The gender pay gap is the difference between the average (mean or median) hourly earnings of men and women across the organisation and is expressed as a percentage figure.    Genesis Cancer Care UK Limited has a workforce demographic that is 76.4% female, which represents a change of -0.5% since the publication of the previous gender pay gap data as at 5th April 2020.

The median represents the mid-point of the range of data.

The mean represents the sum of all data, divided by the total number of employees.

Gender Pay Gap reporting is distinct from “equal pay” which is about paying men and women differently for performing the same or similar work.

Employee funnel

Our results are based on 458 relevant employees, an increase of 46 employees since the previous gender pay gap report. These relevant employees are used to calculate the gender bonus gap and bonuses paid figures. For the gender pay gap figures, 17 women were excluded because they received less than normal pay during the month of April 2020. This leaves a count of 441 full-pay relevant employees of which 337 (76.4%) are women and 104 (23.6%) are men.

Distribution of employees across the pay range

At GenesisCare our renumeration packages are based upon skills and experience and are reflective of the level of responsibility held. Our annual pay review processes are applied fairly to all employees across the organisation and pay awards are reflective of both personal performance and prevailing market conditions.

Within Genesis Cancer Care UK Limited our female employees span the breadth of the organisation, however, as with may organisations, we have a high proportion of women than men in lower paid roles. Whilst our lower-mid and upper-mid pay bands demonstrate a distribution that is more representative of the organisational gender make-up, we continue to see an over-representation of women by 17.2% in the lower band of the organisation when compared to our overall distribution of employees. This over-representation of women in the lower band is contributed to in the gender diversity of our clinical administration teams who are predominately female and reflects a continuing trend from the previous years’ gender pay gap reporting. This is contrasted by an over-representation of men at the upper band of the organisation of 16.4% when compared to our overall distribution of employees, a reduction of 2.3% since the previous gender pay gap report. This contrast continues to be contributed to by the employment of leading consultant oncologists to ensure that we can provide the best possible patient care to individuals experiencing a cancer diagnosis and treatment pathway. As of 5th April 2021, these consultants were predominately male.

Supporting statement

Our median pay gap remains higher than the Office for National Statistics median gender pay gap of 14.9% in 2020, and forecasted at 15.4% in 2021, however has decreased by 2.6% since the previous Gender Pay Gap Report covering 5th April 2020.

At the time of the 5th April 2021 gender pay gap report, GenesisCare did not have any employees on furlough under the Government Coronavirus Retention Scheme, compared to 16 employees who were participating in the scheme in April 2020.

We are taking positive steps to continue to address our gender pay gap including:

  • We continue to support our employees through various flexible working options including working from home, job share and varying work hours where possible.
  • During 2020 we undertook a full benefit review for all employees which led to improved maternity and paternity pay provisions and increased pension contributions which were implemented from 1st July 2020. The increased maternity pay provisions extended the period of time for employees to receive full pay by a further 50% of their previous duration to assist in supporting our workforce when they choose to start or expand their family.
  • During 2021, our Leadership development programme recommenced following a pause during 2020 due to Covid-19. 16 People Leaders attended our leadership programme, with 81.25% female representation (13/16 delegates), to support their ongoing career progression.
