The business retains its family-owned and managed structure.  The male proportion of the business senior management significantly outweighs the female, and consequently leads to a gender pay gap directly as a result of the family dynamics.  For as long as the organisation remains family-managed, this can only be addressed as part of a long term strategy for change.

It remains significant that, excluding the Board members, there is no discernible gender pay gap within the organisation.
