NRH Gender Pay Gap Report

March 8, 2024

NRH Gender Pay Gap Report 

Introduction

The gender pay gap is the difference in the average hourly wage of men and women across a workforce. The Gender Pay Gap Information Act 2021 requires organisations to report on their hourly gender pay gap across a range of metrics.  Organisations with over 250 employees have been asked to report on their Gender Pay Gap for the first time in 2022.  In compliance with Act, the NRH publishes its Gender Pay Gap Report below, which is a ‘snapshot’ date from the month June 2022.

The report must be based on the last 12 months directly preceding that date, as well as the selected date itself. For the report, the date that the NRH has chosen is 1st June 2022. In publishing the report, we aim to provide an understanding of context of the findings of this report and also provide information on how we, as an organisation, support gender equality and demonstrate our commitment to equal opportunities for staff across the Hospital.

As of the 1st June 2022, our workforce is predominantly female and which reflects the dominance of women working in a healthcare setting.  We value the importance of our female staff to contribute at the highest level as they progress with their careers.  We generally support the progression of our diverse talent pool of staff in managerial and executive positions through internal promotional opportunities and succession planning.  Our female workforce is also well represented in senior management roles and at Board and Executive levels in the NRH.

Pay Scales

It is important to note that our pay scales in the NRH are as per the HSE consolidated pay scales and are determined nationally by the Department of Health, undifferentiated by gender.  We do not have the autonomy to deviate from these pay scales and we are governed by national framework agreements in relation to the application of pay scales in the NRH. The Hospital pays fairly and in accordance with the HSE consolidated pay scales and does not discriminate on the basis of gender.
