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’re proud of AO’s inclusive environment where everyone can succeed, grow their career and be rewarded for their efforts. There’s no doubt that as well as being simply the right thing to do, this diversity of thought and contribution makes AO a better business for our customers and is at the heart of our success.

Whilst we’re pleased that our gender pay gap is below the median for the industry we know that there is more for us to do. We are taking action to close the gap including: inclusive policy and practice – reviewing our policies to make sure that they’re in line with best practice standards, encouraging the development of employee network groups and transparent recruitment.

Our focus on developing a diverse and inclusive culture will continue to be a key focus for us this year.”
