Equal Pay and Gender Pay Gap Statement – Tower Bridge Homes Care

Tower Bridge Homes Care (part of Holmes Care Group Ltd) is committed to the principles of equal pay for all of our employees. We aim to eliminate any gender bias in our pay and remuneration systems and understand that equal pay between males and females is a legal right in accordance with the Equality Act 2010, Public Sector Equality Duty and European law.

The current mean gender pay gap at Tower Bridge Homes Care is -3.98%, this is based on hourly pay rates as at 5th April 2017. This gap shows a small negative gender pay gap, which suggests that on average females earn moderately more than males in employment at Tower Bridge Homes Care. Below we have identified the factors that we believe contribute to this gap:

  • Tower Bridge Homes Care is part of Holmes Care Group Ltd, a Company operating within the Care sector. The care sector in the UK is known to have predominantly female workers and this is reflected by the fact that there are only 55 male employees in the sample whereas there are 349 female employees in the sample. Due to the disproportionate numbers of females in the business it would be surprising if there wasn’t a gap showing females as higher earners.
  • There is no pay gap when considering median pay rates.
  • When we look at pay rates for individual roles it is clear that there is no pay gap between males and females; whereby everyone with the same job title is on the same pay rate, regardless of gender.
  • The pay quartiles show that whilst there are some differences in quartile 2 and 4, proportionally pay is relatively equal across the Company; 13% of the sample are males and 86% are females therefore if we had no pay gap across the Company these would be the figures we would expect to see in each quartile.

To all the staff at Almond View - a big thank you for looking after Mum, with such kindness and dedication. Despite living 400 miles away, I always had a good feeling that she was in good hands.

Bankview Care Home

Thank you for the excellent level of care that my father, Frank Boyle, has received. Bankview demonstrated for us the template for a care home and how it should feel and be run. Friendly, welcoming, excellent care levels, length of time staff remain loyal to the home and above all a clear and comforting atmosphere of great leadership.

K Macdonald in memory of my Aunt Jean

I can't exaggerate the admiration I have for the management and staff of Craigielea. I've never experienced so much patience, coaxing, kindness and care. These people share their lives and emotions, laugh and cry and mourn for the people who entrust themselves to care.

J Ellis in memory of Steve

The staff talked about my best friend being an inspiration to them, despite his illness It made me change my approach with him, instead of being despondent and sad, I spoke with him the way we had always been with each other. The staff saw him as a person.
