In April 2017, the UK Government introduced a requirement that both public and large private sector employers must publish an annual snapshot of what they pay their male and female employees. This has been designed to shine a spotlight on the issue and, ultimately, over time, improve gender pay disparity in the UK.
Last year, Vocalink published its own Gender Pay Report, however, now that we are a part of Mastercard, this report represents all of Mastercard’s UK employees, which includes Vocalink.
Together with Mastercard we aspire to ensure that men and women participate equally in all levels of our company, with the same access to compensation and career development opportunities. To achieve this, we continue to be committed to our existing initiatives, as well as to developing new approaches to improve how we recruit, retain and develop women.
