Hidden Hearing as a matter of stated policy and, more importantly, values, pays staff according to the role they fulfil and their productivity in it, with zero gender bias.
The largest single group of employees, Registered Hearing Aid Dispensers, are paid according to one of two standard packages, both of which have standard basic and standard productivity criteria, the second of which replaced the first for all dispensers registering after April 2017. The first standard package was introduced in 2010. However, 63% of dispensers are still male, a proportion that will only fall slowly as female dispensers have a lower average length of service, offsetting the fact that the trainee dispenser gender split is broadly equally balanced when they start. The second largest group, branch receptionists, have variable basic pay, primarily to cope with regional differences but a standard productivity scheme 97% of receptionists are female; the imminent change of job title might help stimulate more male applicants.
The Company actively analyses staff recruitment, training and turnover looking for gender and other diversity issues.
