Our 2021 Gender Pay Gap Report

We are passionate about fairness, equality and inclusion and are committed to improving the gender representation of our workforce. text The gender pay gap is very different from equal pay, which is about equal pay for equal work. Whole Foods Market provides equal pay for equal work as required by UK Law.

The table above shows our overall mean and median gender pay gap based on full and part-time pay as the snapshot date (i.e. 5 April 2021). It also captures the mean and median difference between bonuses paid to men and women at Whole Foods Market in the year up to 5 April 2021.

These figures are a measure of the difference in the average pay/bonus of men and women accross the entire organisation; regardless of the nature of their work or level. A positive figure is in favour of men and negative is in favour of women. text The overall breakdown of men and women in the organisation is 56.9% men, 43.1% women. text The above image illustrates the gender distribution at Whole Foods Market across the four equally-sized quartiles.

We will focus on improving our gender representation and will continue to provide equal pay for equal work irrespective of gender, whilst fostering greater diversity.

I confirm the data reported is accurate.
