Haskins Gender Pay Gap Reporting


Last updated: 05/03/24

This report sets out the Gender Pay Gap reporting as required by The Equality Act 2010.

It is important to note that the Gender Pay Gap is different from equal pay. Equal pay refers to men and women receiving equal pay for the same jobs or similar jobs of equal value.

The Gender Pay Gap shows the difference between the average hourly earnings of men and women across a company regardless of their roles. The outcomes can be affected by a range of factors including ratio of men to women in the workforce and the number of full time versus part time men and women.

Introduction to Haskins

Haskins is a family owned group of 5 garden centres and a visitor attraction called Birdworld, all based in the south of England. Garden Style was closed in September 2023 but due to the snapshot date for Gender Pay Gap, the employees from Garden Style are included.

The Haskins culture positively encourages diversity within the business and believes in creating job opportunities and job progression for everyone regardless of gender.

  • On the 5th April 2023, we employed 770 employees with a split of 64% females and 36% males.
    • On the Haskins Group Ltd Board there were 4 members and none were female
    • On the Haskins Garden Centres Ltd Board there were 7 members and none were female
    • On the Birdworld Ltd Board there were 6 members and 0 were female.
  • Our senior team in Group Office, excluding Board Directors totalled 5, 40% were female
  • The garden centres and visitor attraction management teams totalled 72, 50% were females.
