In a report submitted to the Government’s Gender Pay website, Asda has stated that, for the 2018 Gender Pay Gap reporting period:
Asda’s Senior Vice President of People, Hayley Tatum said: “Rates of pay and access to benefits and opportunities are the same at Asda, regardless of gender. Whilst our gender pay gap is better than the national average and we have seen the figures improve this year, we recognise that, like many businesses, we still have challenges when it comes to female representation in more senior roles – and that is something we’re committed to addressing.”
Asda’s report details that, in 2018, the retailer has put in place a number of initiatives to work to reduce the gap over the longer term and support more women into senior roles. These include delivering unconscious bias awareness training for all of its salaried managers and introducing balanced candidate slates and interview panels for all senior hires.
