The proportions of male and female employees receiving bonus pay during the relevant period.
96% of male employees and 87.5% of female employees received a bonus payment in the relevant period.
We consider the main reasons for the differences in these proportions are that very few female staff work within the operational sector of the business. All operational positions attract the potential to earn bonus. Head Office roles tend to be more evenly split, however not all head office roles attract a bonus payment due to the nature of the work carried out.

As an industry Fast Fit is predominantly dominated by males. All senior managers within the operational divisional of the company are males and therefore a higher proportion of males than females within the company are in senior positions.
The percentages of females within the company is 6.6%, the percentage of females in more senior positions is 5.6% therefore the percentage of females in more senior roles is reflective of the percentage of females within the Company
Although National Tyres and Autocare have promoted the inclusion of women within our branch network, especially through our Apprenticeship programme, the percentage of women working within this sector of the business remains extremely small. It is traditionally seen as a male job; however, we are starting to see a greater interest in females wanting to carry our mechanical roles.
Out with the Operational Division, females are more evenly represented in the senior roles within the Company. As a Group, Axle has a high proportion of females in Senior Management roles. As some of these female in senior roles are employed by our sister company Viking Wholesale Tyres, their salaries and bonuses have not been taken into account when calculating National Tyres and Autocare Pay Gap statistics. However, Viking Wholesale Tyres, although not legally obliged to carry our Gender Pay Gap reporting have carried out this exercise and this shows a negative mean and median gap in hourly rate of pay. In addition, there is a negative gap in relation to mean and median bonus pay gap.
