Report on the Gender Pay Gap at LotusWorks

LotusWorks is strategic engineering and technical partner to some of the world’s largest multinational clients across the semiconductor, pharmaceutical, medical device and datacentre sectors. With a workforce split of 88% male to 12% female, LotusWorks welcomes Gender Pay Gap Reporting; it is highlighting a critical area of our industry and an important step in encouraging change for the future. 

Gender pay gap is different to equal pay. The gender pay gap shows the difference in average pay between men and women, we review pay to ensure that there is consistency between roles and employees within roles. 

LotusWorks Gender Pay Gap

LotusWorks embrace diversity, uniqueness, and individuality so that we can lead the way towards an inclusive workplace for all. Over the past number of years, an increasing focus has been brought to gender pay gap as a means of highlighting the need for increased focus on gender diversity in the workplace. 

According to Engineers Ireland female engineers represent just 12% of the profession in Ireland, latest data from the Higher Education Authority indicates that 23% of engineering graduates are female. Further analysis shows that the pay gap is largely driven by significantly lower female participation in engineering roles. This statistic is reflected in LotusWorks’ workforce split of 88% male to 12% female.
