Huawei UK – 2017 Gender Pay Gap Report

Introduction

Huawei Technologies (UK) Co., Ltd. (Huawei UK) has a strong long-term commitment to promoting equality and diversity in our business. The UK Government has introduced a requirement for all organisations with 250 or more employees to report their gender pay gap each year. The company welcomes the opportunity to report its gender pay gap figures and to share our activities promoting equality and diversity. The Senior Management Team at Huawei UK recognises the value a diverse organisation brings and is committed to promoting an inclusive culture and environment where everyone can flourish regardless of gender.

The figures below the UK Government’s requirements based on the position as at April 2017. The gender pay gap shows the difference in the hourly rate of pay of men and women expressed as a percentage of the hourly rate of the male employees.

Insights

At Huawei UK, we have robust policies and procedures in place to ensure that men and women who are undertaking the same jobs or jobs of equal value are paid the same.

Huawei UK is a performance-driven organisation and our pay and incentive strategies reflect this. Gender plays no role in decisions taken relating to pay and benefits. Our gender pay gap is predominantly due to the substantially more men than women are working at all levels of our business, but particularly in the more senior roles. And those in engineering, technical and sales which are the higher paid roles. Over half of the female employees work in support functions (Legal, Finance, HR, Administration).

It is important to recognize that these factors are not unique to Huawei UK, this is a challenge facing the ICT Sector as whole, both here in the UK and elsewhere.

Our Commitment

The Senior Management Team at Huawei UK recognises the value a diverse organisation brings and is committed to promoting an inclusive culture and environment where everyone can flourish regardless of gender. We believe there is more we can do to help reduce the gender pay gap across our business, principally by encouraging more women into senior and other higher paid roles. The following are some of our initiatives:

Huawei UK welcomes the opportunity to regularly report our gender pay gap and the steps we plan to take towards reducing the gap.
