Gender Pay Gap Reporting (Ireland)
HedgeServ is committed to attracting and hiring the right talent to ensure our clients’ and firm’s success.
The Gender Pay Gap Information Act 2021 introduced the legislative basis for gender pay gap reporting in Ireland. The Act requires organizations with more than 250 employees to report on their hourly gender pay gap across a range of metrics. HedgeServ Ireland’s Gender Pay Report can be found here.
Our commitment to diversity and gender inclusion is demonstrated through the programs below which are an integral part of HedgeServ’s culture. We recognize the need to further develop these and other programs to proactively achieve greater gender balance and inclusivity at all levels across the organization. Our corporate values create a sense of shared purpose and belonging for all HedgeServ employees.
Mentorship Program: Our Mentorship Program has proven very successful, with employees having the opportunity to be mentored by our senior leaders within HedgeServ. They share their knowledge, skills, and experience with more junior employees to develop strong career paths and foster a culture of development and support. This is a voluntary program that is open to all HedgeServ employees.
We will enhance this program further by proactively offering employees returning to work from extended periods of leave a dedicated mentor.
Innovation Council: As an innovative organization HedgeServ embraces new ideas and initiatives that can positively impact our organization. Recognizing the key role our employees can play in this process we have established an innovation council, a framework for employees to submit and present their ideas to the leadership team. All ideas are welcomed and encouraged. This initiative gives us the opportunity to implement innovative initiatives which can support an inclusive and diverse workforce. We will actively focus on suggested initiatives which will support us in improving our diversity and inclusion efforts within HedgeServ.
Hybrid Working Model: We offer our employees flexibility through our hybrid working model. Employees can elect their preferred working model i.e. to work from home or from the office or a combination of both. This gives greater work life balance for our employees and further promotes diversity within our workforce. We will continue to offer this model to our employees as research demonstrates this can help shrink the gender pay gap.
Learning & Development: We have a comprehensive menu of L&D programs for our employees which supports a positive, collaborative, and inclusive working environment. We have created a robust catalogue of learning supports including, instructor and SME led courses and workshops, on demand and micro learning modules, and other resources, to complement our industry leading training programs.
Employees complete mandatory online training in the areas of diversity and inclusion and unconscious bias on an ongoing basis.
In addition, we have recently upskilled a team of internal facilitators who have been trained to successfully deliver Diversity and Inclusion workshops. These workshops will enhance the training already in place and create open discussions on the challenges and biases in place which can potentially impact gender inclusion.
All interviewers undergo interview skills training before commencing the interviewing to ensure an inclusive process. We will enhance our interview skills training further with a more in-depth focus on unconscious bias and diversity and inclusion.
HedgeServ has recently introduced a global Competency Framework, creating standard behaviors and expectations for all levels across HedgeServ, and providing transparency and expectations for every role. This framework is supported by our comprehensive L&D programs and will enhance our promotion and career development processes with an objective set of standards creating a structured framework to consistently deliver fairness and equity and build a pipeline of senior candidates.
