Gender Pay & Bonus reporting statistics for staff employed at 5th April 2019

Johnsons Cars Ltd employed 1005 “relevant employees” at the snapshot date (5th April 2019) of which 916 were “full-pay relevant employees”.


Historically, the automotive industry has been heavily male orientated and it is therefore with no surprise that there is an uneven split between men and women. At the snapshot date, 73% of employees were men, 27% were women. The number of female employees has increased by 15 over the 2018 figure, whilst the number of male employees has increased by 9. The automotive industry is also heavily dependent on bonuses forming part of employees remuneration with 71.2% of the total workforce receiving bonus payments.


A Pay Gap is the difference in average pay between two groups within a workforce. It is not to be confused with equal pay which is concerned with individuals being paid equally for the same or similar types of work. Johnsons Cars is an equal opportunities employer and fully understands that equal pay between males and females is a moral obligation as well as complying with the Equality Act 2010. We undertake annual pay reviews and take any appropriate action to address any inequality should it be highlighted. The information given below concerns the Pay Gap between males and females within the workforce of Johnsons Cars Ltd.

Mean Gender Pay Gap 14.3% (14.6% in 2018)
Median Gender Pay Gap 9.9% (11.0% in 2018)

The mean and median hourly pay gap reflects the demographic of the organisation with a high proportion of male employees employed at the senior level. This pay gap will continue to exist until a more equal split between males and females are employed at all levels throughout the business.

77.1% (78.6% in 2018)

Johnsons Cars operates performance related bonus schemes and consequently the bonus pay figures confirm that most employees (72% of all relevant employees) receive a bonus. Male employees who earn bonuses receive an average of 21% more than their female colleagues whilst the median pay gap is 25% higher for male employees. The mean and median bonus pay gap differences are due to the higher proportion of men in the “selling arena” (approximately 80% men) earning significantly more than 50% of their total income as bonus.
