We passionately believe that embedding equality in everything that we do enables our colleagues to be at their best, to realise their potential and to deliver outstanding service to our customers.
"We are proud to have been voted in the top 27 best companies (large employer) to work for in the Great Place To Work survey, 8th in the UK for a Great Place for Women to work and recognised as 17th in the Stonewall Top 100 employers (2018), reflecting the effort we put in to promote diversity. We very much welcome the legislative reporting requirement for organisations to publish details of their gender pay gap as it supports our ongoing work to promote equality.
"Our results show some progress; our gender pay gap is below the UK national average and we have a greater proportion of females to males in our organisation, unlike many other firms. During the past year we have used our results for improvement, continuing to have a Director who is accountable for diversity in the workplace, developing a ‘Women into Senior Leadership’ programme and a network group for women to join as well as continuing to have gender represented at shortlists for recruitment and promotions. However, we recognise that there is much more we can and will do and we use our results to drive further improvements, helping us to reduce the gender pay gap and develop all of our colleagues, regardless of which gender they identify as.
"As Chief Executive of Home Group I can confirm that the information contained in this statement is accurate."
Mark Henderson, Home Group CEO
