We want every colleague to see Pets at Home as a place where they can make the most of all of the opportunities we offer and where talent is the only determining factor in their success
So we welcomed the UK Government’s requirement to publish gender pay gap information. Our Retail division is the only Group entity to fall within the parameters set by the government.
Our median gender pay gap is 9.7%. In common with many retailers, women make up the majority of our colleagues and across 75% of our colleagues we are encouraged to see the gender pay gap is either less than 1% or is favourable to women. In the highest paid quartile, where men outnumber women, our gender pay gap is less than the UK average.
The report also sets out a range of actions we are taking to help close the gap, including overhauling our recruitment website and guidelines to make sure that we are showcasing the diverse and flexible opportunities we offer, making sure we are putting in place clear career pathways and making sure that the benefits we offer support a healthy work-life balance.
