Company Statement: Gender Pay Gap

Gender Pay Gap Report


Mainetti’s philosophy is to fairly compensate all employees for their contributions to the Company, with a focus on pay market data, relevant experience and performance when setting compensation rates. Staff, both male and female, who do the same work are paid the same wage.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we had a large number of staff on furlough or who had voluntarily accepted to work fewer hours for less pay. This included us asking staff to voluntarily accept some unpaid leave time to support the business through the pandemic lock down period. This resulted in having only 27 full pay relevant staff out of 252 relevant employees in the snapshot period and this has skewed the reported data below enormously.

Our gender pay gap is influenced by the salaries and gender demographics of our engineering and logistics staff who are predominantly male and their higher salaries relative to other roles. There are also more males in senior positions although steps are being taken to address this. This increases the average pay for our male employees.
