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 6,900 – 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 6929, which is spilt 92% male and 8% female.
The data shows that on average Women’s mean bonus pay is less than Men’s, and on average Women are paid less than Men.
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 and GIRLPOWERED which is an engineering event for girls in primary school to encourage STEM. Running for the last five years, we have already seen more than 1400 young people take part.
Nissan also held Women’s Celebration Month in March, in line with International Women’s Day and to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. This included health awareness campaigns.
I can confirm that the information and data reported is accurate.
