Gender Pay Gap
Triumph is the original British Motorcycling Company, whose sole focus is to design, engineer and manufacture the best motorcycles in the World. Never standing still, we are always pushing to get the best from ourselves, for our customers, for our brand; at Triumph, we apply the same passion to our workforce, valuing the benefits of inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
As Triumph is committed to the principle of equal opportunities and equal treatment for all employees, it is confident that any gender pay gap does not stem from paying men and women differently for the same or equivalent work. Any gender pay gap is the result of the demographic of the industry in which Triumph operates and the roles in which men and women work within the Company and the salaries that these roles attract. Never complacent, Triumph recognises that improvements can always be made and are committed to wanting to reduce our gender pay gap.

Industry and Sector Specific Commentary
The automotive industry is focused on the science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) subjects, which are statistically and widely recognised to be male dominated in the UK. It is reported by WISE (who campaign for gender balance in science, technology and engineering, and were established in 1984 following the Finniston report on the future of engineering in the UK) that women consist of 11% of the total workforce within the engineering sector.
Looking to the future
It is clear that the gender balance within our workforce is uneven, reflecting the broader imbalance within the industry and this requires time and support from the industry as a whole to address.
In April 2017, women formed approximately 12% of the Triumph workforce as a whole. As a leading motorcycling manufacturer in the UK, Triumph would like a better balanced workforce. Triumph actively seeks opportunities to work with the industry to promote engineering irrespective of gender through collaborations with education institutions and organisations.
Triumph aims to improve its Gender Pay Gap through the following activities:
- Triumph Design Awards, a programme to inspire A-level students of all genders to participate, with an award for the Young Engineer of the Year.
- Whilst Triumph has no direct control over the subjects that students select, Triumph aim to promote and influence their choices by demonstrating the possibilities for both genders in engineering.
- The Company will continue to promote and inspire school students through presentations by both male and female engineers of Triumph to demonstrate that engineering is open to everyone.
- By encouraging all Triumph Engineers to support at graduate careers fairs for STEM subjects.
- Where possible, to support women to reach their full potential by removing unconscious bias in the manufacturing workplace. Triumph has taken steps to support this by increased flexible working opportunities, making roles more accessible for all and to support everyone in the Company with their work life balance.
- Reviewing the Company benefits to continue to support family friendly initiatives.
By undertaking these activities, Triumph seeks to continually challenge the attitude that engineering is a male dominated sector.
