Gender pay gap reporting
Under UK legislation, all organisations with 250 employees or more are required to publish data which demonstrates the pay differential between male and female employees.
In the UK, Tyman has two operational divisions, ERA and SchlegelGiesse, and a small Group head office. None of these entities have a payroll that exceeds 250 employees. At present. there is no legal requirement for any one of these employing companies to publish their pay differential data. However, it is recognised there are benefits for Tyman in compiling and publishing this information. In addition, Tyman expects that in future years a legal requirement to report this data may arise.

Diversity and equal opportunities
All Group employment policies and practices require that an individual's skills, experience and talent are the sole determinants in recruitment and career development rather than age, beliefs, disability, ethnic origin, gender, marital status, religion and sexual orientation.
The Group is committed to supporting employment policies and practices that make provision for equal opportunities and non-discrimination, and that comply with relevant local legislation and accepted employment practice codes.
Within the Group local diversity and unconscious bias training programmes are conducted. All salaries are linked to job evaluations to promote equality of opportunity. As a manufacturing organisation there are challenges in attracting females into the industry. All divisions have been working on bringing more female representation into leadership positions, at both executive level and in sales and development roles.
Training, development and retention
Each Division has policies on recruitment processes, talent development and succession plans, supported by adequately funded training and long term management incentives and retention initiatives. Each Division seeks to develop every member of its workforce by providing them with the right level of ongoing training, whether this is product knowledge, manufacturing process development or policy and management training.
