UK Gender Pay Gap Report 2023


At Slalom, we strive to be the kind of company that creates a thriving culture of inclusion, diversity and equity that is reflected and experienced across our local and global teams. We believe that our diversity allows us to better serve our clients and communities and to help people and organisations dream bigger, move faster and build better tomorrows for all.

We are pay equal at Slalom, however whilst our gender pay data is similar to other businesses, you will see in this report that the primary areas for our pay gap are largely driven by a smaller representation of women in senior positions and our overall female representation. Sustained change takes time, however we are moving in the right direction. Our gender pay gap has decreased from 19.9% in the previous reporting period to 19.4% (-0.6%)  and our gender bonus gap has decreased from 49.6% to 44.1% (-5.5%).  Our overall female population has also grown to 41% as of March 2024.

We believe our reputation for innovation means we should play a role in leading the way for our industry to improve our figures in a long term, sustainable manner. Since starting Slalom in the UK we’ve worked hard and are proud of our progress, and we appreciate there’s more to do.  We continue to grow - and as we grow – we are committed to driving change and working harder to achieve our inclusivity and diversity goals.”


Gender Pay Gap Explained

The UK Gender Pay Gap Reporting measures the difference in pay between all working men and all working women within an organization, irrespective of the type of work they do, their seniority or their location.  Organisations follow a calculation methodology set out by the Government Equalities Office to report their mean and median pay gap, bonus gap and distribution of team members across pay quartiles.

Gender Pay is different to Equal Pay.  Equal pay ensures that all individuals performing equal work of equal value are compensated equally and would account for factors such as role, experience, performance and location as legitimate differentiators for pay gaps.  Equal Pay is governed by the Equality Act.

At Slalom, we put our people first, and we are committed to providing equal opportunity for all our team members.  This analysis focuses on gender, as per the UK Legislation, but gender parity is just one demographic data point.  We regularly review our processes and practices to ensure that we are doing our part to prevent bias that could unintentionally cause pay inequity.

Although we have reported a gender pay gap, we are pay equal at Slalom. We continue in our commitment to ensure that team members who are performing similar roles, in the same location with similar experience and impact, are compensated equally.  We run a thorough pay equity exercise annually to ensure this is at the forefront of our compensation philosophy.

Gender pay is an ongoing process, and we are working to improve these figures and continue the steady progress we have made. Slalom is committed to long term meaningful and sustainable change for our industry, and we are looking at various mechanisms to play a leading role in driving this change.
