Our gender pay report summarises the percentage difference between average earnings for men and women. Employers with over 250 employees must publish their gender pay statistics every year.
This gender pay report for Nissan cover all 5 of our UK sites with a combined headcount of more than 7,000 – Manufacturing in Sunderland, Research & Development in Cranfield, Parts Centre in Lutterworth, Design in London, Sales & Marketing in Rickmansworth. The total combined headcount of all these entities is 7670, which is spilt 93% male and 7% female.
Although a higher proportion of female employees are eligible to receive a bonus payment compared to their male counterparts, their average bonus payment is currently lower as a result of their distribution across the bonus eligible grades.
At Nissan we believe that diversity gives us strength and is key to the success of our business. That’s why we pride ourselves on being an equal opportunities employer and have a range of Talent initiatives in place, such as high potential development, leadership and career coaching to support our female workforce.
Our award winning schools engagement program, the Nissan Skills Foundation, delivers a range of initiatives that encourage young people to take up a career in Engineering and Manufacturing. These initiatives include GIMME (Girls in Monozukuri, Manufacturing and Engineering), which is specifically geared towards women. Running for the last five years, we have already seen more than 1200 young people take part.
For the first time in 2019 all Nissan UK entities held a diversity week. During diversity week numerous activities were ran for all staff, including; “talk-around” sessions with female senior leaders of the business, a diversity networking session including influential females from the UK. The aim of the week was to improve knowledge of diversity across all UK based sites.
I can confirm that the information and data reported is accurate.
