Gender Pay Gap reporting

Find out what we’re already doing and what more we can do to make every role at Glyndebourne as attractive to as many people as possible.

Gender Pay Gap reporting is a legislative requirement the Government brought into effect in 2018 for organisations employing more than 250 people.

It’s important to note that it is not the same as the requirement to pay men and women equal pay for equal work. We’re confident we pay men and women equally for doing like for like work.

As at the 5 April 2018 Glyndebourne had 215 employees (compared to a weekly average of 325 in 2018, numbers varying considerably over the course of the year). Whilst the number of employees as at 5 April 2018 falls below the Government threshold to report, we consider it important to do so as part of our commitment to equal and fair treatment of all our staff. We believe that this is a great opportunity for us to talk about what we’re already doing and what more we can do to make every role at Glyndebourne as attractive to as many people as possible.

We are very pleased to report that as at 5 April 2018, our Gender Pay Gap has improved on last year’s published figures and remains below the national average published by the Office of National Statistics at the time of reporting. The Median Gender Pay Gap was at -1.7% (i.e the median pay to women was 1.7% higher than that to men), compared with 16.3% at the same point the previous year. While we recognise that we do still have a Mean Gender Pay Gap, although reduced from the previous year, we are proud that these figures reflect Glyndebourne’s commitment to equality at work.
