Gender Pay Report 2018
At Comfy Group, we believe in fair treatment and rewards for all employees where pay is dependent on role and not gender. Our ‘Respect’ values run through the core of our business and we are confident that all our employees are treated fairly and equally. We are committed to improvement in gender pay and in 2018, we are proud to report that our mean gender pay gap has closed by 4% and our median hourly rates for men is negative, meaning that our median pay for women sits slightly higher than men in the Group. In 2018, we have addressed differentials in bonus pay to provide a bonus payable across the board to every Comfy employee with 100% of male and female employees being paid a bonus with the median £ bonus demonstrating no gap, being the same for both male and females.
This report demonstrates Comfy Group’s continued commitment to equal opportunities and equal treatment to create an inclusive workplace that works for everyone. Being a reputable company and operating with integrity and trust is one of the Group’s core values and we are passionate about treating our employees fairly and equally, which includes our approach to pay. We conduct regular pay and benefit audits to ensure that we always pay employees equally for the same or equivalent work and have a regular 1:1 process to ensure opportunities for training and promotion are available to everyone. We continue to embed our Comfy ‘Respect’ Values into the business and actively promote Comfy Group as an Employer of Choice in the North West, demonstrating we are an inclusive employer where women are able to excel. We are confident that working as one team by ensuring our employees are treated fairly, equally and with respect will enable Comfy to stand out in the community and continue to make our employees and customers proud.
