We publish our gender pay gap reports annually in line with statutory requirements to show the pay gap between our male and female employees. Bedfordshire Police is committed to reviewing and understanding these figures to take action to seek to reduce our gap and be an employer of choice within the community.
Gender pay reporting is a different requirement to carrying out an equal pay audit. It is not a review of equal pay for equal work, rather it compares hourly rates of pay and any bonuses staff may receive by gender, seeking to identify any imbalance.
We use the results to assess:
- the gender pay gap of our workforce as a whole and for officers and staff separately
- the balance of male and female employees at different levels within our organisation
- who bonuses are paid to and the reasons for them being paid
