Gender Pay Gap Report

The gender pay gap shows the difference in average pay between men and women. It does not measure equal pay which relates to what men and women are paid for the same or similar job, as set out in the Equality act 2010.

The information within this report collates data from McLean & Appleton (Holdings) Ltd (t/a Hatfields) for the pay period including 5 April 2022. Warrington Garages refers to the 8 dealerships that trade under the statutory entity Warrington Garages Limited. McLean & Appleton (Holdings) Ltd is the group holding company comprising Warrington Garages Limited, Hatfields Garages Limited and McLean & Appleton Limited.

We are confident that Hatfields’ gender pay gap is not a pay issue; we know this because our approach to pay is gender neutral and our analysis shows that our pay gap is driven by the structure of our workforce. The greater proportion of men than women in sales and senior roles creates the pay gap. Our workforce is male orientated in common with many other businesses in the motor industry. We strive to encourage applications from female candidates to continually seek to restore this balance.

Pay and Bonus Gap

The table below illustrates our overall mean and median gender pay gap based on hourly rates of pay expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings as at the snapshot date (i.e. 5 April 2023). It also illustrates the bonus pay gap on bonuses earned in the 12 months leading up to the snapshot date.


Proportion of Employees Awarded a Bonus

The below table illustrates the proportion of male and female employees being paid a bonus in the 12 months up to the snapshot date.


Pay Quartiles

The table below illustrates the gender distribution at Hatfields across four equally sized quartiles. It shows that there are proportionally more men in the senior higher paid roles than there are in the lower quartiles. This drives the difference in pay and bonus gap between men and women.


I confirm that the data reported is accurate.
