Workforce diversity and gender pay gap data

Our mission is to build a diverse workforce and create an inclusive workplace at Legal & General. Being transparent about where we are and what we are focusing on is key to making progress.

Gender pay gap

In 2021 we again saw a continued, progressive narrowing of our median pay gap, from 26.6% to 24.1%, with positive movement in all of our reportable entities.

Our ambition is to share more about the diversity of our workforce and we will do this in due course.

For now, we are focused on increasing the quantity of characteristic data we hold on our employees. As this is shared with us on a discretionary basis, we are running a communication and engagement programme, ‘Count Me In’, encouraging employees to share information about their background (ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, socio-economic background and others).
