Keltbray, a leading UK specialist engineering business, today releases its Gender Pay Gap Report for 2021 and reveals it has increased its female workforce by 19%.

Gender Pay Gap reporting is a requirement of all companies with 250 or more employees, and shows how men and women’s average pay compares across the organisation.

The full Gender Pay Gap Report for 2021 shows:

  • 19% of Keltbray’s workforce is now female
  • Keltbray has a 4% increase in the number of women working in the highest paid quartile
  • 4% decrease in Keltbray’s mean gender pay gap since 2017
  • Keltbray’s mean hourly rate gap has increased by nearly 3% this year
  • Keltbray’s mean bonus gap has increased by nearly 9%

Commenting on the results, Darren James, Chief Executive Officer at Keltbray said: “We welcome the opportunity to share our Gender Pay Gap results again this year, as although our results show we have a way to go in closing our gender pay gap, we are pleased to see that we are gradually increasing the number of women we employ and we are seeing more women in senior positions. However, we understand that like many others in the industry we are on an inclusion journey and with this in mind, we want to build on our progress each year and hold ourselves to account on our inclusion performance.”

Keltbray’s Group People Director, Kyla Farmer, said: “Our results show that whilst change is happening, we are still on a journey and it’s going to take time. The formation of our Inclusion Committee and the appointment of our Inclusion Manager last year was an important step forward in our inclusion journey, and the steps we take over the new few months will be crucial in creating real, lasting change. We are far from complacent, we’re willing to put the work in and foster an environment that is not only attractive to women, but ensures everyone thrives and can fulfil their potential.”
