Gender Pay Gap
We acknowledge a minor gender pay gap at Clece Care Services, where the average hourly earnings of our male employees are slightly higher than those of our female employees. This discrepancy largely stems from a higher proportion of men in fewer administrative roles, set against our predominantly female workforce, alongside the preference of part-time hours for many colleagues. Additionally, the preference of part-time contracts for numerous female employees in the field, in comparison to our predominately office-based men team members, impacts these figures. Having a predominantly female workforce means that even small fluctuations in the male workforce can have a significant impact upon our Gender Pay Gap.

Pay Gap Across Departments
It is our strict policy to maintain equal pay for male and female employees across all departments and levels within the organization. We ensure fairness and transparency in compensation, regardless of gender.
