New report shows Wyboston Lakes Resort is closing the gender pay gap

60 per cent of the senior management team at Wyboston Lakes Resort are female and, looking at employees by pay, 49 per cent of staff in the upper quartile are women.
These are among the notable facts revealed by leading hospitality, conference and training venue Wyboston Lakes Resort’s Gender Pay Gap Report.

Mark Jones, Managing Director of Wyboston Lakes Resort says: “We are committed to ensuring that everyone is rewarded equally for their work regardless of gender, and the pay gap is closing.

“We are also committed to giving everyone equal opportunities to progress to the highest level in their careers with us and have signed the Diversity in Hospitality, Travel and Leisure Charter.”

Highly ranked in the list of Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For over the past five years, Wyboston Lakes Resort has promoted 74 individuals based on merit, 68 per cent of which have been female in the past 12 months. This is representative of the venue’s workforce, which is 63 per cent female.

To help ensure staff are developed for the future, the venue has created the Wyboston Signature Training programme. Open to all managers, supervisors and team leaders, the course consists of monthly training modules taught over eighteen months. Half of the staff on the programme are female.

Programme modules include Essential Skills, which have been specifically designed for new supervisors and managers. The Mentor Programme for middle managers, now in its third year and a 54 per cent level of female attendance, continued expansion is planned.

As part of a commitment to nurture new recruits and recent graduates, Wyboston Lakes Resort has also launched its Graduate Training Programme this year and will welcome its first intake in July. Its internal coaching, mentoring and ongoing training programmes have seen five females promoted in to Deputy Manager roles, three in departments and two overseeing its conference venues, and this number is expected to continue increasing.
