Boots has a proud history of championing women and today we continue to drive inclusion, champion diversity and promote opportunity for everyone.
Now in its fifth year, we’ve published our Gender Pay Gap report (as of April 2021), in accordance with the Government’s Gender Pay Gap Regulations.
This past year, we continued to introduce new initiatives to support women in their day to day experience of working at Boots and in their aspirations to develop and progress. As we look ahead to our ambitions for the coming year, this work will continue with senior leader workshops on gender equity, company-wide training and support relating to the menopause, and a reciprocal mentoring scheme pilot to help leaders and their teams understand more about the lived experience of women in our organisation and the importance of allyship
We are proud that we continue to close our gender pay gap and excited by our future plans to keep moving forwards and create an environment in which all colleagues can thrive.
Our gender pay gap statistics are of huge importance to us as a business where women make up more than three quarters of both our workforce and our customer base. We continue to strive to make Boots a truly inclusive and diverse place to work.
