Danshell Healthcare Ltd – Gender Pay Calculations As At 5 April 2017
Danshell Healthcare Ltd was founded in 2010 and has grown rapidly through the acquisition of existing services for the past 7 years. Danshell Healthcare Ltd provides various services across England and Scotland, focusing primarily on services for adults with learning disabilities, autism and complex needs. Danshell Healthcare Ltd is one of the largest independent sector providers of learning disability services in the country with 26 services.
The care sector is traditionally where it is more likely to have a greater pool of women to recruit from than men. This is reflected in our proportion of males to females in our pay band and overall headcount for each gender. We do however, proactively recruit males in the services where we have male only service users.
Where there is a greater number of females employed at each band this in turn increases the % of the proportion of females to males. The bonus payment scheme is payable to all Service Managers irrespective of their gender. For this year’s calculation there are a higher number of female managers employed within the business at this time.
It is worth noting that Danshell Healthcare Ltd as a company have no significant gender pay gaps as demonstrated in our calculations. Therefore there are no immediate actions we need to address as a business. All the calculations are in line with those described in the guidance for the Equalities Act.
However, the company will continue to use effective recruitment and retention policies to ensure our workforce remains at the centre of delivering our high quality of service. We will ensure we are compliant with any legal updates in respect of pay i.e. National Minimum Wage. Danshell Healthcare Ltd will also continue to ensure through good practice there are no gender inequality gaps in the future.
