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.

2019 Gender Pay Gap Report

Statement from John Roberts, CEO.

“It’s essential that we have a diverse workforce here at AO and also a truly inclusive culture. However, for me, this isn’t just about gender. It’s about treating everyone who works for us and with us fairly, with dignity and respect; irrespective of their gender, sexual orientation, background, age or disability. Ensuring we have people at the table from all different types of backgrounds is vital, as I believe that is the best way for us to achieve success in all aspects of our business.”
