Gender Pay Gap Report 2019

Sabre Insurance Group plc and Sabre Insurance Company Limited – Gender Pay Gap Report

Whilst Sabre currently has fewer than 250 employees, and therefore is not required to submit a formal statement on its gender pay gap, our intention is to be transparent and commit to publish its gender pay gap report on an annual basis. Sabre believes that by publishing this information it holds the Company accountable to ensuring gender equality regarding pay. We confirm that the data and supporting narrative contained in this report is accurate and that the figures in this report have been calculated using the standard methodologies used in the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.

Information on the reporting requirements can be found: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/gender-pay-gap-reporting-overview

At Sabre we are committed to being a diverse and inclusive employer and want to ensure transparency on gender pay throughout the organisation. We want all of our employees, regardless of their gender, race and ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, age or disability to have the same opportunity to progress and reach their full potential.

What is Sabre doing to address its gender pay gap?

Sabre’s Executive Team is currently predominately male, which creates a bias in the numbers. However, in the past twelve months, Sabre’s two hires into the Senior Management Team were both female. Sabre further recognises that the IT and Business Systems Departments are predominately male, which are areas where salaries are typically higher. 

We are continuing to develop an inclusive and diverse company. During the recruitment and interview process we ensure fair, non-discriminatory and consistent processes are followed, and Sabre has a policy of, where practical advertising all roles internally to allow employees to progress and develop. Sabre also supports working parents through shared parental leave, enhanced maternity leave and where possible embraces flexible working for all our employees.

Sabre has reviewed employee salaries and can confirm that those employees with the same job titles and length of service are paid the same amount, as illustrated below:
