In order to be as transparent as possible, and to encourage further dialogue on this topic, we have also released a separate non-statutory report which details the gender profit gaps for the firm’s partnership. This document also provides details on the overall gender pay and profit gap for the firm as a whole.
Martin Bunch, Managing Partner, Bates Wells, said:
“This year’s figures underline that, while we’re headed in the right direction, we still have more work to do in order to close our gender pay and profit gaps and live up to our responsibilities as a B Corp in this area. We already have plans in place to address the firm’s outstanding issues and we have these set out in all of our gender pay reports, which we hope will achieve this aim.
“Next year with the involvement of our Diversity & Inclusion & Employee Forums, we plan to issue detailed analysis of Bates Wells’ ethnicity pay gap alongside our gender pay reports. By publishing this additional report we hope to again go beyond our regulatory obligations and provide a more complete picture of where we stand with respect to diversity.
