Ever Brite is a provider of commercial cleaning services operating across the UK. With over 700 clients, and over 1,000 staff, Ever Brite has a preeminent position in its market sector and takes great pride in it being an exciting and equitable place to work. 

At Ever Brite, everyone is paid for the role they have in the team and for their performance in that role. No other factors affect an employee’s remuneration. Ever Brite is an Equal Pay employer – men and women performing equal work receive equal pay. 

Ever Brite has a decreasing Gender Pay Gap – the hourly Mean Pay Gap has decreased to 1.79% in 2023 (versus 2022) whilst the Median Pay Gap has slightly increased to 1.26%. The figures in this report are based on the snapshot dated 05.04.23. The proportion of male and female employees is split into quartile bands in the table below based on Hourly Pay.  

The banding illustrates that women make up 67.3% of employees in the upper quartile, an increase of 4.27%. Women make up 70.14% of employees in the upper middle quartile, a decrease of 5.76%. Women make up 75.36% of employees in the lower middle quartile with an increase of 6.69%, while in the lower pay quartile there was a 2.91% decrease of women in that pay bracket. 

These changes from 2022 resulted from expanding our workforce and the annual pay increase being applied which saw a shift from the lowest quartile to the lower middle for some staff. Our recruitment demand was for cleaning technician roles, which typically attract female applicants who fall into the lower middle quartile bracket, which also impacts the increase recorded here. The lowest quartile bracket mainly encompasses staff required to work term time only. 

Bonus payments 

Ever Brite has an equal commission structure for our all salespeople (two people). Our managers also have the ability to earn bonuses. The number that do so is diminuitive.
