The company now has an employment ratio 49 to 51 % female to male, representing once again equal pay for equal jobs in every salary banding quadrant as defined by the Government Equalities Office.

Julian Edwards, CEO at MCE Insurance, said: “Equal pay is part of our social responsibility and every day we play our part in ensuring the UK is free from all discrimination. There is no limit to our drive in helping our country to create the right gender culture.
