Gender Pay Gap

HTS (Property & Environment) Ltd started trading on 1st February 2017, following the TUPE transfer of 313 staff (now 340), and are a company wholly owned by Harlow Council in Essex. HTS provides housing repairs and maintenance, environmental, housing regeneration, and capital/planned works services.

We are an accredited Living Wage and Disability Confident employer who also pay our apprentices this rate of pay.

HTS has a rolling programme of 10 apprentices which since 2017 has led to 7 permanent appointments. We are committed to maintain up to 10 apprentices on an annual rolling basis.

As part of its organisational development and people strategy, we have wherever possible succession planned/promoted from within the business (circa 60+ since 2017) with many of the successful people being female and hence providing the opportunity to earn a higher level of salary.

We believe that our Gender Pay Gap statistics support and show a good reflection of the HTS organisational and people development strategy that we have adopted.
