Our commitment to closing the gap
Aldi has always been an organisation where people can thrive and develop regardless of their gender or background and we continue to offer fair, equitable pay to all colleagues.
Our pay structure is completely gender-neutral, but we know there is always more we can do to close our gender pay gap and this is something we are absolutely committed to.
We have a comprehensive Diversity and Inclusion Strategy that drives progress in all areas of the business. A key focus of this strategy is to understand our gender pay gap figures and drive continual improvement.
Gender representation at all levels and formats across our business is mapped, enabling us to identify where new programmes and initiatives will have the most impact. As a result, we have implemented many exciting initiatives to attract, retain and support women’s progression within Aldi.
Beyond the gender pay gap, we recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion and understand that Aldi needs to better reflect all of the communities we serve, as well as providing more support to minority and underrepresented groups.
That’s why we are currently making positive changes to the way we attract, recruit and support our people. We want to ensure that Aldi is a diverse, inclusive and supportive place to work for everyone.
