These results reflects our long standing team career development policy which provides clear and accessible opportunities to train and develop and pay that reflects performance and responsibility.

Our strategy of people development helps us to meet our company goals, our stated purpose, our vision and enables us to build strong in-house teams with strength in depth. 

Our strategy remains to retain our good team members by offering the opportunity for them to progress their skills and career and by treating them well in a workplace that is both fun and happy.   At the time of writing 56% of our managed estate is operated by General Managers who have come through our career development programme. 

We recognise that there is a higher proportion of males in General Manager and Kitchen Manager positions which impacts the bonus pay gap figures.  Higher bonuses are made for these particular roles due to the skills shortage at this level which affects the hospitality industry as a whole. We are glad to report that as at 5 April 2017, our Assistant Manager roles were 28 female and 29 male which bodes well for the General Managers gender ratio.
