Gender Pay Gap Report

Beko plc’s Gender Pay Gap Report analysed the salaries and bonuses of male and female colleagues in the year to 4th April 2020.

The Company has a diverse multinational workforce, spanning sales, marketing, operations, logistics, HR, finance, field service operations, and R&D with 317 UK staff.

Below highlights the gaps in our mean (average) and median hourly pay and bonuses and the proportion of male and female colleagues in each pay quartile. The median and bonus pay gaps have reduced since last year and with new female appointments at senior level, we expect the mean gap to reduce in the next report. Our objective remains to reduce any gaps to as near zero as possible.

“Our parent company Arçelik is a signatory to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and Women’s Empowerment Principles supporting women’s empowerment in the workplace and community. This includes participation in the “He for She” campaign, Women in Leadership training, and awareness of unconscious bias. In the UK, we have an active Women in Leadership group and a Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion Committee, both helping raise awareness regularly on critical topics in this domain.”

“As Managing Director, I believe strongly in providing a work environment that nurtures and rewards talent - regardless of gender, ethnicity, orientation, belief or background - so will continue to make sure this stays top of our agenda. ”
