Prudential plc publishes 2017 UK Gender Pay Gap Report
Prudential plc has today published its 2017 UK Gender Pay Gap Report. The figures in the report cover all of Prudential’s UK-based staff.
Tim Rolfe, Group HR Director at Prudential plc, said: “Our UK gender pay gap reflects the fact that men and women have traditionally held different roles, particularly in the financial services sector. It highlights the fact that we have more men than women in leadership, investment management and senior operational roles, and that we still have work to do to achieve our ambition of reflecting the communities we serve.
“The solution is not to change pay scales but to take steps to ensure that we attract talented applicants from all backgrounds, create opportunities for all our employees to develop and progress, and challenge systems, processes and mindsets to ensure that they do not disadvantage women.
“The gender pay gap cannot be removed overnight, but we are committed to closing it as quickly as possible.”
