Gender Pay Gap Report

Creating Balance

Our people and culture have always been a huge priority at AO. Any success we experience comes from our people being who they are, loving what they do and striving to reach their full potential. We know this will only happen if we create a working environment where people feel equal, as well as supported on their journey through the business.

All big businesses in the UK are required to report on their gender pay gap as of April 2017. We are encouraged to report that our mean gender pay gap is better than the national average.

AO is committed to diversity in the workplace

Statement from John Roberts, CEO.

“We are totally committed to making sure we reward our people fairly, based on what they have achieved, not who they are. We want our people to belong here, and in order to do that they need to be included. We recognise that inclusion goes beyond gender, and that having a diverse and vibrant team is a key element in delivering a better tomorrow for our people and customers.


I am pleased with our progress so far. Our senior leadership team are putting even more focus on increasing inclusion at AO over the next 12 months. This will help us be bolder and even more driven in our approach”
