Entain, one of the world’s largest sports betting and gaming groups, has published its report on Gender Pay Gap covering last year, where it detailed its diversion and inclusion policies.

Entain was proud to announce that the median hourly pay gap between male and female workers dropped from 7.1% to 5.3%.

The chief executive officer of Entain, Jette Nygaard-Anderson said that over 50% of retail employees are female.

She said that Entain’s vision is to create ‘a best place to work’ platform, where employees feel valued, respected and engaged. She said that it was important to reflect these values in the way employees are rewarded.

“We are pleased to report that our median hourly pay gap has reduced to 5.3% from 7.1% – substantially lower than the national average of 15.4%,” she said. “This reflects the gender parity in our retail business where 54% of our colleagues are female.”

Other interesting facts in the Entain report:

  • In the upper tier of the company, 39.1% were female.
  • In the upper mid-section, 52.3% were female.
  • Women made up the majority of the lower-mid and lower quartile of the workforce.

More studies are in the pipeline to understand how the pay gap can be reduced further.  A Women@Entain network has been launched for female employees to share their experiences and give feedback.
