PRO Unlimited’s UK Gender Pay Gap Report, Diversity and Representation Commitments

POSTED BY PRO UNLIMITED | APRIL 5TH, 2022

PRO Unlimited is committed to increasing and embracing all dimensions of diversity. We are dedicated to creating an inclusive work environment for all employees, including our contingent talent. We believe in fair and equitable pay and are dedicated to representation at all levels.

First, it is important to outline the difference between equal pay and the gender pay gap. Equal pay is the insurance that men and women performing the same or similar work must receive equal pay. The gender pay gap analyzes the overall difference between all men's and women’s earnings across the organization. The gender pay gap is reported on a mean and medium basis. The data indicated in this report is the overall gender pay gap.

The mean hourly pay gap analyzes the difference between men and women based on the overall average pay per gender. On the other hand, the median hourly pay gap analyzes the difference between genders based on the midpoint of the earning range found by lining up employees’ wages from lowest to highest.

The data below shows the hourly and bonus pay gap for all UK PRO Unlimited employees, followed by the proportion of employees at each level of the organization. There is a significantly higher percentage of males in the upper quartiles, which drives a bigger hourly pay gap and the bonus gap. There is a higher percentage of women in the lower quartile roles, which traditionally do not award bonuses.

Mean Median
Hourly Pay Gap 35% 41%
Bonus Pay Gap 73% 84%

received a bonus pay
26% of Women 20% of Men




PRO Unlimited is in a unique situation. Due to the type of services we provide to our clients, we must take into consideration two different employee populations: billable and staff. Staff refers to our traditional, full-time employees, while billable employees are contract workers that are staffed at our clients. PRO Unlimited only manages the transaction, while the client directly determines the pay and bonuses of billable workers.

Looking Forward

The primary cause of the gender pay gap is the lower representation of women in leadership, and PRO Unlimited is committed to increasing the representation of women in the highest levels of our organization. One of our DE&I metrics is increasing women in leadership by 4% by 2025. We are proud of our company-wide gender representation of 62% and continue to work towards an even higher representation at leadership levels. As part of our efforts designed to reach our gender representation goals, we continue to evaluate our hiring and promotion processes, ensure we engage with diverse candidate pipelines and support the growth of our employees through targeted development opportunities and benefits.

Women at PRO feel supported by connecting with a community of women through our Global Women’s Employee Resource Group, Shakti. Shakti works to empower women by providing professional development opportunities and a strong community.

In addition, PRO Unlimited offers the following:

  • - Diverse slates in leadership hiring
  • - Paid Maternity leave through PRO above local government requirements
  • - EAP includes work life balance solutions/programs
  • - Mentoring and re-joining opportunities for mothers returning from family leave
  • - Flexible working hours and convenient remote working arrangements
  • - Unconscious Bias and Inclusive Leadership training
  • - Employee engagement surveys broken down by gender to ensure we are aware of differences in experience
