Reseller gender pay progress in six quotes

What did the likes of Softcat, XMA and Avanade say on the issue of gender pay in their latest reports?

Despite the disappointing lack of progress on gender pay gaps, some resellers and MSPs should be applauded for publicly documenting their efforts to make headway on the issue in a year in which there was no mandatory requirement for them to do so.

Around a half of the firms in our market disclosed their gender pay gaps this year, and - in turn - about half of this sub-group gave detailed commentary on the figures in accompanying pay gap reports.

CRN Essential subscribers can find a full analysis of reseller gender pay trends here, but here is a round-up of some of the most powerful quotes that sum up the challenge our industry faces on gender pay.

Softcat

Today we have more men working in sales as they are more prepared to take on roles entailing cold calling. We have made changes to the language used in job advertisements and are pleased to see small improvements more recently in our sales intakes attracting more females

XMA

We recognise that there is a lack of female candidates for many technical roles but believe long term commitment to promoting STEM subjects

and careers in technology can help address this imbalance in the long term

Avanade

We know that an inclusive and diverse environment drives employee engagement and increases productivity by delivering different

perspectives, ideas and approaches to working

OneCom

We are focused on addressing the structural imbalance in order to reduce our pay gap, and are conscious

that to do this we need to increase the representation of females in our sales roles, where their earning potential could increase

Version 1

While we are not where we want to be just yet, we believe with continued focus, effort and supported changes, the dial will continue to move towards a more inclusive

workplace for all. We are getting there, and we are continually committed to examining our gender imbalances across the organisation.

Redcentric

We have… seen an increase in the number of females within our organisation overall, which is a positive step forward. However, 62% of

females are in the lowest two pay quartiles of our business, which has negatively impacted our gender pay gap in 2019. This was an expected outcome, as we focus on building female representation within our business for the future.
