Ethnicity Pay Gap

Our commitment to ensure people of all ethnicities can succeed at Fujitsu

At Fujitsu, our commitment to ethnic diversity and equality is unwavering.

In 2020, our Cultural Diversity Network held a series of roundtables to listen to our people from ethnic minority backgrounds to understand their experiences and perspectives. The insight from our colleagues was invaluable and formed the basis of our Ethnic Diversity Action Plan.

A key part of our Ethnic Diversity Action Plan is Fujitsu’s commitment to publishing our UK Ethnicity Pay Gap. As signatories of Business in the Community’s Race at Work Charter, we actively support mandatory Ethnicity Pay Gap reporting.

Today we have an Ethnicity Pay Gap and our commitment is to eradicate it. We will use this measure to hold ourselves accountable for making progress and eradicating the gap.

The Ethnicity Pay Gap shows the difference between the average pay for all Fujitsu UK employees who have told us they are of an ethnic minority background and all employees who have told us they are of a white background, irrespective of their role or seniority. It is not the same as unequal pay between different ethnicities for doing the same work.

To understand this more, we have analysed the data across different ethnicities, genders, roles and working patterns.

In doing so we can clearly see that we have a seniority gap in Fujitsu UK: meaning that based on the people who have told us their ethnicity, we have a greater proportion of colleagues from an ethnic minority background occupying more junior roles compared to a greater proportion of colleagues form a white background occupying more senior roles. The bonus gap by ethnicity is driven by a disproportionate number of white people on management incentive plans: this is also a consequence of the seniority gap.
