Gender Pay Gap Report 2019

At Rockfish we believe in treating all staff fairly and equally. Whether you are a Managing Director, a Chef, a Waiter or a Fishmonger working in our Fish Room we believe that you are entitled to equal respect and for each role you are also entitled to a fair and equitable rate of pay.

We employ a diverse range of people and believe in selecting the best person available for each role and as such we have a fairly even split of genders at all levels of the organisation. This can be seen by the split of males and females in each pay quartile.

Number of men & women in each quartile

Lower: 24 Male / 36 Female
Lower Middle: 28 Male / 31 Female
Upper Middle: 36 Male / 23 Female
Upper: 37 Male / 23 Female

Mean Gender Pay Gap - 17.3%

Median Gender Pay Gap - 6.0%

We do have a small Median Gender Pay Gap of 6.0%, this is due to a higher proportion of our highest earners being male which pushes the average male rate of pay within Rockfish marginally higher. For the same reason we have a Mean Gender Pay Gap of 17.3%.

Proportion of Males receiving a bonus  2.4%

Proportion of Females receiving a bonus  1.8%

Mean Bonus Gender Pay Gap  -43.1%

Median Bonus Gender Pay Gap  -50.5%

A small number of bonus payments were made in the period to 4th April 2019, Rockfish had a negative Mean Gender Bonus Pay Gap of -43.1% and a negative Median Bonus Gender Pay Gap of -50.5%. This is due to the fact that the number of bonus’ paid to each gender was relatively even but the total value paid to Females receiving bonus payments was significantly higher.

The Future

As we move forward, we will continue to employ staff on an equitable basis by continuing to focus on the attributes of the individual. By doing this we are confident that we will continue to employ a fair mix of staff at all levels across the business.

I confirm that the information used to prepare and contained within this report is an accurate representation of our Gender Pay Analysis for the period ending 5th April 2019.
