XPO Reports UK Gender Pay Gap Data Showing DE&I Progress
Press Release | Northampton, UK | Jan. 31, 2023
XPO, a leading provider of freight transportation services, has published its 2022 UK Gender Pay Gap Reports on its website, with data related to the impacts of its gender pay policies and its diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) initiatives. The company strives for pay parity between men and women.
Dan Myers, XPO’s managing director – UK and Ireland, said, “Whilst we’ve made great strides in addressing gender differentials in compensation, there’s no room for complacency. We know that we must continue to prioritise attracting women into our business, and also promote from within. Initiatives such as our Women Drivers Forum and Women in Logistics Forum have become an instrumental part of our culture in the UK, moving us from a good workplace to a great one.”
The Gender Pay Report shows near parity in its Transport Solutions employee population and a slightly higher comparative pay for female employees of its Bulk Transport business.
Whilst work continues to achieve pay parity, progress in the company’s DE&I efforts highlighted in the reports are:
- An increase to 42% of XPO’s graded roles held by women across all UK operations, reflecting success with recruitment and talent development initiatives;
- An increase to 42% of XPO’s apprenticeship opportunities filled by women, reflecting the growing diversity of the company’s training initiatives;
- An increase in the number of women participating in XPO’s leadership development programmes, to 30% of Level One and 31% of Level Two;
- The successful development of our female employees and the proportion of outperforming females, evidenced by the higher average bonus amounts for female employees than male employees.
Lynn Brown, XPO’s vice president, human resources – UK and Ireland, commented, “At XPO, we proactively help women build careers in a male-orientated industry by removing barriers and promoting development. And it doesn’t stop with gender — we’re committed to equal opportunities for all colleagues as a true meritocracy. XPO’s recruitment practices encourage diversity, making us an employer of choice.”
