UK Gender Pay Gap Statement

NTT DATA Services works globally to help businesses, organizations and government entities transform operations through digital technologies. Inclusion is one of our corporate priorities, and our immediate focus is on recruiting, retaining, and developing women across our business. We remain committed to compensating our employees in a manner that is fair, equitable and market competitive. Our support for gender equity is based on respect for basic human fairness, and it recognizes that gender equity correlates to better business results and is a key component in sustaining an inclusive culture.

According to the 2023 data for our U.K. employees, the gender hourly pay gap is 12.8 percent, a decrease from 14.2 percent in the previous year. The median hourly pay difference between women and men decreased considerably from last year to 5.9 percent. The decrease is predominantly due to headcount movement and hiring into technical and consulting roles. When analyzed by grade level and work role, the differences are minimal and are driven by length of service, time in role and/or skills required. When reviewing the employees against internal pay ranges, women are predominantly positioned at the same or higher than men within the range for the specific job family and grade level.

As part of our effort to effect positive change for women, NTT DATA supports the employee-led Women Inspire NTT DATA (WIN), which is our largest Employee Resource Group and has a global footprint. WIN provides opportunities for employees to nurture personal and professional development, support recruitment and retention of highly talented women, and promote and support DEI initiatives that recognize and respect the individuality of all NTT DATA employees.

Diversity and inclusiveness are core values for NTT DATA Services, and a key part of our company’s vision is that we enhance our creativity by respecting diversity. Our DEI council drives the strategic direction of the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion office.

One way we support the achievement and sustainment of our DEI goals is through continuing education, awareness, and practice through in-house training. NTT DATA launched an Inclusion Intelligence certification program that helps team members understand the importance of modeling the values, actions and decision-making needed to sustain a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace. With multiple diversity programs worldwide, we leverage tremendous strength in working together toward common objectives through our DEI Champions, who harness the power of our corporate programs and initiatives while driving new ideas and activities locally across the globe.

“Diversity, equity and inclusion are one of our top corporate priorities, and our commitment is illustrated by the small pay gap identified in the U.K. Even so, we have work to do, and we’re focused on recruitment efforts and support systems that will lead to a more gender-balanced workforce. We view this as both a moral and business imperative. Fairness is the right thing to do, and credible research proves that gender balance leads to better financial results, increased market share and greater innovation.”
