An Post committed to gender equity in pay and recruitment

In its second annual Gender Pay Report, An Post has shown it has reduced its gender pay gap from 3.7% over the last 12 months to 1.41%.

The Irish postal operator’s report has shown that there has also been a significant improvement in female representation across all management and staff groupings.

It has also shown its plans to further improve gender balance in pay equity and recruitment in the coming year.

Announcing the company’s 2020 Gender Pay Report Chief Executive David McRedmond said: “Fairer recruitment, visible change, and public commitment all played their part.  While we’ve taken some big steps in the past year, we have more work to do in increasing the number of women across the general management group.

“The Covid pandemic has shown how quickly management practices and ways of working can change and the biggest benefit from our drive for gender equality has been the emergence of great talent and specific expertise.  I want to thank all my colleagues and An Post’s Unions for making this happen: this is our journey to be a force for good, in An Post and in our world”, he concluded.

Eleanor Nash, Chief People Officer, An Post said “An Post is committed to positive change, holding ourselves accountable and ensuring we create an inclusive workplace for all our employees.   We want everyone at An Post to thrive with us”.
