What is the Gender Pay Gap?

The gender pay gap is the difference in average hourly pay between men and women across the entire organisation. This is expressed as a percentage of men’s earnings and provides a basic overview of the gender pay gap balance in the organisation.

What is Pfizer UK's Gender Pay Gap?

Our median Gender Pay Gap stands at 6.6%. In 2022, our median gender pay gap was 11.3%, whilst in 2021 it was 7.5%. This fluctuation of pay disparity serves as evidence that the journey towards closing the Gender Pay Gap is not linear, but rather one influenced by a number of factors which we continously aim to address. Our full analysis can be found in the Gender Pay Gap Report 2024.

What is Pfizer UK's commitment for the future?

Addressing the gender pay gap is a priority for the Pfizer UK board, supported by a dedicated team and strategy to address it:

  1. Ensuring recruitment diversity to build a stronger gender balance of candidates across all levels and stages of the recruitment process. 
  2. Create a trusting and flexible workplace culture which encourages employees to achieve work life harmony, enabling everyone to be their best working self.
  3. Evaluate and implement a programme of career progression support, enabling colleagues to find clarity, momentum and direction to make positive changes.
  4. Ensure a colleague going into and returning from long term absence is exposed to equal opportunities, so that they can progress whilst feeling supported, engaged and part of the business.
  5. Create an environment that supports employees at every stage of the family-life cycle, from childbirth to adult years, recognising the modern family comes in many different forms.

Our commitment to addressing the gender pay gap reflects our values: Equity, Joy, Courage and Excellence.

Through living these values we are dedicated to implementing positive change, to our business and the wider society.

“Closing the Gender Pay Gap is a key priority for Pfizer UK. We're proud of our progress, determined to keep embedding the practices and policies that support diversity, and we're committed to maintaining a workplace that attracts the best talent and allows it to thrive.”Denise Harnett
