Linsco is an equal opportunities employer and offer an internal tiered salary structure, irrespective of gender. Internally we employ more women (66%) than men (34%), and have a spread of external construction temporary workforce working on our clients behalf, of which 84% are men and 14% women.
This difference is highlighted in the official statistics for 2016, 87.6% of total construction workers in the UK were men, whilst 12.4% were women. We are pleased to see that our figures exceed the national averages.
In 2007, historical data shows that men accounted for 87.5% of the total construction workforce and women accounted for 12.5%, thus suggesting that the gender ratio has remained largely unchanged nationally.
Our results show that overall our gender pay gap is minimal in size (3% and 4% respectively) and one that we have little control over as it is our clients that set the rates of pay for the hired workers. The majority of our construction industry workers are male, something which we are inherently affected by and have little effect of changing.
In respect of the control we have over our own internal staff, all trainees and new internal staff are recruited under the same structure and their earning ability depends on their success and career progress.
All internal employees are encouraged to grow and earn to their full potential. Any pay gap difference shown will be a result of differing roles & bandings, however all employees working in the same bandings will be earning the same rewards.
We strive to continually improve our gender gap and will publish the results again in April 2019 as requirement of the government initiative into equal pay
