Gender Pay Report

IDS is committed to gender equality, including equal pay for men and women, and reducing any overall pay gap. Alongside a transparent salary structure, based on incremental progression, IDS offers a range of additional benefits aimed at increasing gender equality across the organisation, including:

  • Paid shared parental leave
  • Flexible working
  • A child care fund to support those with additional childcare needs.

IDS offers a wealth of other forms of reward, focused around engagement factors such as the Institute's purpose and values, and other benefits such as:

  • Holidays
  • Closure days
  • Pension
  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave
  • Support for professional development and sabbaticals.

Legislation relating to gender pay gap reporting came into effect in April 2017 for all organisations with more than 250 employees. The gender pay gap refers to the difference between the median and mean salary of all men and all women in an organisation. IDS staff numbers currently fall slightly below this threshold, with 239 'relevant workers', so we are not required to publish pay gap information. However given IDS's strong commitment to equality, we carried out a pay gap assessment in 2017
