I believe that for ManyPets to make the world a better place, we need to treat everyone fairly.
Despite great leaps forward in awareness, I am saddened to see that there are still systemic barriers to gender pay gaps around the world. It also would be remiss of me to fail to acknowledge that the intersectionality of someone’s gender identity should not be viewed in isolation - and we should also consider someone’s heritage or ethnicity, socio-economic status, age, and other elements of how they identify. While the gender pay gap report is a great first step, the journey we face together towards truly fair pay feels like a longer path to walk.
At ManyPets we take pride in supporting, valuing, and recognising every voice, every background - and indeed everyone within our company. While we’re making strides towards improving our gender pay gap, there is still lots of work to be done to ensure gender pay equity for everyone in our business.
Our leadership team is made up of 40% women. We’ve increased our representation of women within the business from 52.4% in April 2022 to 65.1% in April 2023.
Our results show that our mean pay gap of 36.7% is tracking below the average. With our business being a part of the Financial Services and Technology sectors and with pet insurance being our core business, we recruit specialist individuals in both the tech and veterinary nurse professions. Due to the historical nature of dominant genders within these professions, this has significantly impacted both ends of our gender pay gap report.
It is important to note that gender pay gap is different to equal pay, and fairness of equal pay is fully embedded at ManyPets.
I am not complacent with our results, and we still have work to do. While we are faced with challenges in both financial services and technology, we’ll continue striving to break down the barriers for women.
Read on and we’ll explain more about what this report covers, how we measure up, and our plans for the year ahead.
