Gender Pay Gap Report

HF Holidays is required by law to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

As an organisation we are fully supportive in helping to eliminate any gender pay gap in Great Britain while addressing gender representation and supporting women in the workplace. HF Holidays remain committed to the principal that we will not discriminate on pay, bonus or benefits based on anyone’s gender or sexual orientation and will work towards having a diverse and gender balanced workforce that reflects the customers and communities we serve.

We are required to publish the results on our own website and on a government website.

This report details our April 2018 to April 2019 results compared to the previous year.

UNDERSTANDING OUR GENDER PAY GAP

This Gender Pay Gap report highlights that over the last 12 months, the number of women working in senior and higher paid roles has increased. Over the same period, the number of female employees in lower paid roles has decreased, which has impacted on the average pay of female employees.

As a consequence when comparing both the mean hourly rate and median hourly rate, female employees at HF Holidays are now earning more than their male colleagues.

HF Holidays will continue to focus on our Bonus Pay Gap, and will further develop its recruitment, promotion, pay and reward policies where ‘we do the right thing’ and everyone is treated fairly, respected and valued.

HF Holidays is committed to paying our team members equally for the same or equivalent work regardless of sex, age, race, religion or belief, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, sexual orientation, gender reassignment or disability.
