What is the Gender Pay Gap Report?
As required by the UK Equality Act 2010, Rockwell Automation filed the attached 2020 Gender Pay Gap Report with the Government Equalities Office for Rockwell Automation Ltd, our employing entity in the UK. As a company, we are committed to diversity, equity and inclusion and we support initiatives that promote industry-wide transparency and awareness regarding equal opportunity within the workplace.
Our report presents mean (average), and median (the midpoint) gender pay gap data. The mean gender pay gap refers to the difference between the average earnings for women compared to men, and the median pay gap refers to the difference between the earnings for the midpoint woman compared to that of the midpoint man working within our United Kingdom offices and facilities, without regard to the nature of the work being performed.
A gender pay gap is different from an equal pay comparison which examines whether there is a difference in pay between men and women with similar qualifications and experience carrying out the same or comparable work. A gender pay gap does not equate to an equal pay issue.
One of the main challenges for gender representation in the industries we serve is that they remain predominantly male. For many years’ women have been underrepresented in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) university courses and occupations. And so, in our core business, industrial automation and information solutions, the gender distribution within our workforce reflects this market reality.
