Salmon (trading as Wunderman Thompson Commerce) believes that all employees should be treated equally regardless of gender, ethnicity, age, religion, sexual orientation, or disability.
As a company with a high proportion of specialised technical roles, we naturally encounter more challenges in recruiting. Salmon employs more men than women, and with fewer women in more senior roles, this results in a gender pay gap, as reflected in our gender pay data for 2019 and 2020.
We are committed to closing the gender pay gap with long-term solutions that are both impactful and sustainable, with a focus on creating a gender-balanced talent pipeline and ensuring we support more women into senior roles.
