All of our manufacturing companies are members of the Furniture Industry Research Association (FIRA) and our beds and headboard businesses were among the first in the UK to gain approval for the National Bed Federation (NBF) code of practice.

Airsprung Furniture Ltd Gender Pay Analysis – Reporting Statement (2017)

As an employer with over 250 employees we are required to carry out Gender Pay Reporting under the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations. This analysis requires us to perform a number of calculations that identify any differences between the average earnings of men and women within this business; it does not require or involve the publishing of personal individual data. We are required to publish the results of our analysis on our own website as well as a government website. Our data, taken as at 5th April 2017 and accompanying statements are set out as follows;

Women’s hourly rate is:

The table above identifies the respective percentages of men and women employees who received bonus payments.

The Gender Pay Gap Reporting data above is to the best of our knowledge correct for all employees covered by the Regulations as at 5th April 2017.

Airsprung is an employer who firmly believes in a fair and ethical approach to pay. We believe that men and women in our employ are paid equally for doing equivalent roles within the organisation and that all appointments are based solely on merit.

The ONS Annual Survey of Hours and Earnings suggested an 18% (median) gender pay gap in favour to male employees. Our figure of 0.6% (favourable to women employees), represents ostensibly a parity situation across the business and is significantly less than ONS survey and we will strive to maintain this position.
