Target welcomes the opportunity to report our Gender Pay Gap figures and to be transparent about our gender pay difference and the positive actions we as a Company can continue to take to reduce this gap and ensure opportunities for all employees.
Our aim is to reduce our Gender Pay Gap and we have formulated a multi-faceted approach to allow us to build on and work towards fulfilling this goal.
Our results have been calculated using the required snapshot date of 5th April 2018 and have been independently verified.
