Vospers Gender Pay Gap Report

Vospers Motor House Ltd - 2024 Gender Pay Gap Report

The above table shows Vospers gender pay gap as at the snapshot date of 5th April 2023.

Employees on reduced pay due to sickness or maternity/paternity etc have been included in the bonus pay calculations, although are excluded from the calculations for average mean & median hourly rates and quartile calculations.

Vospers remain confident that men and women are paid equally when working in equivalent roles, and are committed to ensuring equality in pay throughout the organisation. In publishing our gender pay gap data, it should be noted that this legislation is distinct from equal pay, as it is not measuring the parity of roles of the same level.

Since our previous gender pay gap report in April 2023 (snapshot date 2022), Vospers have continued to be impacted by very competitive recruitment markets for technical workshop jobs, which pushed salaries up in these predominately male roles, although an across the board pay increase in January 2023 has resulted in a reducing percentage difference between male and female rates.

As such, whilst the gender pay gap data April 2023 continues to reflect the motor industry’s historical and current workforce being male dominated, at the snapshot date Vospers mean hourly rate percentage difference showed a positive reduction from 8.19%% to 7.91%, and our median values data, reduced from 3.9% to 0% suggesting a more realistic picture of our data due to outliers not influencing the overall spread of data.

At the 2023 snapshot date there has been a reduction in the percentage of both male and females in receipt of bonus payments, although positively for those receiving bonuses, the mean and median difference in value between males and females has reduced from 42.14% to 36.66% and 68.21% to 44.2% respectively.

Our snapshot data continues to demonstrate higher value bonuses for males which is as a result of the majority of our sales and service teams being male and receiving commissions or bonuses, and are therefore currently the higher earners in the company. With the difficulty in recruiting females into these roles, this is unlikely to change in the short term.

However, Vospers are continuing to focus on addressing the level of female employees in the motor industry across all roles, promoting from within to ensure a gender balance at all levels within the business, and encouraging female applications for our vacancies in an effort to increase our diversity in male dominated areas of the business, and this is an area that will require on-going focus.

In reviewing our quartile data, the lower two bands show the percentage of females decreased by 2% from 21%-19%, and males increasing by 2% from 79%-81% which is a positive move in supporting diversity in different roles.

The upper middle quartile also positively shows a 3% increase in females in this category, demonstrating a retention of the key skills females bring to the business in higher paid roles, whilst the top quartile remains relatively unchanged from 2022 data.
