HFW’s gender pay stats all over the board
Holman Fenwick Willan has published its gender pay brackets, with information about all staff, fee-earners, and partners being revealed.
The statutory pay gap (all staff excluding partners) shows the men are paid on average 17% more than women, a number that rises to 31% calculated by the median figure. Men also receive 41% more in bonus on average, or 54% median.
Factoring in only associates, women are actually paid an average of 5% more than men, but even the firm notes that that is partly because of highly paid associates who haven’t broken into the heavily male-skewing partnership. As far as the partners go, women earn on average 9% less than men, or 28% on a median basis.
