CR Smith 2020 Gender Pay Gap Report

The business was closed at 5th April 2020 due to COVID-19 and almost all employees were on furlough. This has distorted the figures reported for hourly fixed pay and pay quartiles as these are based on only 18 employees.

CR Smith is passionate about promoting fairness and equality amongst our workforce. We have reported gender pay gap results as required under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 showing gender pay gap levels within our business.

We are confident that the gender pay gap is a result of the types of roles males and females are carrying out within our business. Pay scales reflect different types of roles and the pay gap does not reflect an issue with equal pay for males and females carrying out similar roles at CR Smith. The company welcomes applications from males and females for any position and continues to monitor recruitment and remuneration policies and practice. I confirm that the gender pay gap calculations for CR Smith are accurate and have been prepared in accordance with The Equality ACT 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
