Kellogg reports 4.3% mean gender pay gap

Kellogg Company has reported a mean gender pay gap of 4.3% for average hourly pay as at April 2019.

The organisation, which has over 800 employees, reported its gender pay gap data in line with the government’s gender pay gap reporting regulations.

The reporting regulations require organisations with 499 or more employees to publish the differences in mean and median hourly rates of pay for male and female full-time employees, the gap in men and women’s mean and median bonus pay, the proportions of male and female employees awarded bonus pay, and the proportions of male and female full-time employees in the lower, lower-middle, upper-middle and upper quartile pay bands.

Kellogg Company’s median gender pay gap is 3.1%, as at April 2019. On average, women earn 97p compared to every ÂŁ1 their male counterparts earn. Its median gender gap for bonuses paid during the reporting period is 18.9%. The mean gender pay gap for bonus payments is 33%, up from 13.5% the previous year.

Over the reporting period, 69% of female employees and 14% of male employees received bonus payments. Just over one in ten (11%) % of employees in the highest pay quartile at Kellogg’s are female, compared to 7% in the second quartile, 7% in the third quartile and 19% in the lowest pay quartile.

Sam Thomas-Berry, vice president of HR at Kellogg Europe, said: “Kellogg Company is a diverse employer, dedicated to meaningfully accelerating gender parity across our organisation. Our commitment to diversity and fairness can be traced back to our founder WK Kellogg who was a pioneer in employing women in the workplace.
