British Cycling has published its gender pay gap figures for the first time.
British Cycling’s results between April and December 2017 highlight a mean gap between men and women of 21.2 per cent and a median gap of 10.1 per cent.
These figures had reduced to 13 per cent and four per cent respectively by December.
British Cycling’s chair Frank Slevin said: “These results show an encouraging trend for British Cycling but it is essential we continue to improve in this important area.
“In order to grow and develop as an organisation, we need engaged employees who get the support they need to perform at their best, who are rewarded fairly and who are helped to develop their careers
“We have already introduced a number of measures including an annual culture survey and flexible working hours for staff. Further measures will be developed as we strive to be an organisation which prioritises its people as much as its performance.”
