- To foster an environment where independence of thought is highly valued and where all individuals are encouraged to achieve their full potential and fully contribute to the goals of the company.
Gender & Pay
At Kerry, we believe in paying people fairly for the job that they do and for their personal contribution to the success of the organisation, regardless of their gender. We are confident that male and female colleagues are paid equally for equivalent jobs.
In accordance with UK legislation, Kerry has published its first reports on ‘Gender Pay Gap’ for our UK employee population. Gender pay gap looks at the difference in average female earnings compared to average male earnings regardless of role.
Kerry has two business entities in the UK which are subject to reporting and for both employing entities, our average and median gender hourly pay gaps compare favourably with the current national average median gap of 18.2%. These reports on Gender Pay Gap can be found below.
