A new goal has been set by William Hill to reduce the gender pay gap by year 2020. William Hill is pledging to reduce the gap from 17.19% to 10%.
William Hill revealed the results of a survey that was conducted by the company. Results claims that 72% of women who currently are employed by the bookmaker feel they are and other employees are treated fairly. William Hill reported that male hourly wages are 10.88 while females receive 9.01, on average. The bookmaker has committed to make sure women represent 30% of its senior staff. They said the issue at hand is the “imbalance at senior levels within the business”.
“We are actively seeking to attract women in to senior positions within the group, and have made several management-level female hires in the last 12 months and 27% of our group executive are now women. Applying findings from research we have undertaken, our job adverts are now worded neutrally and do not use words or references that conjure masculine imagery. We are also commencing unconscious bias training to help interviewers identify unknown bias towards certain roles, and we regularly feature women in the Behind The Bet blog on our careers site,” William Hill said in a statement.
