At Bus Éireann, diversity takes many forms, spanning gender, ethnicity, and generations.

At Bus Éireann, diversity takes many forms, spanning gender, ethnicity, and generations. Our workforce is made up of 50 different nationalities, bringing diverse perspectives, experiences, and backgrounds that are the driving force behind our dynamic growth and continued success.

We value and actively advocate for diversity within our workplace. Bus Éireann has a history of working within our communities, for example, with Field of Dreams, TU Dublin’s College of Engineering and Built Environment on the Access to Apprenticeship Programme and recently Tús. We also participate in the Business in the Community World of Work programme. We have a school partnership with Bus Eireann (Capwell Cork) and nearby Coláiste Éamann Rís.

As part of our ‘Driving Change Sustainability Strategy, 2021-2030’ we have set clear objectives on gender representation, including achieving equal representation on our Board of Directors by 2030, increasing the proportion of female service supervisors from 2% in 2019 to 10% in 2030, and focusing on hiring more women drivers.

In our first Gender Pay Gap Report, launched in 2022, we were pleased to report a mean gender pay gap of -10.2% in favor of female employees and a median gender pay gap of -5.6% in favour of female employees, reflecting a greater level of gender balance at senior management levels. In 2022, the Senior Leadership Team of eight, comprised three females or 37.5%, while within overall management grades, females comprised 39%. In 2022, 13% of recruits were female up from 12% in 2021.

In our second Gender Pay Gap Report we are pleased to report a mean gender pay gap of -11.8% in favor of female employees compared to Ireland’s average of 9.6% in favour of men. Our gender pay gap identifies the imbalance that currently exists, whereby women are better represented in Bus Éireann leadership roles, rather than operational or customer facing roles. While 90% of our workforce is male, women in customer facing roles make up just 4% of the population. Fundamentally, we want a more even distribution of men and women across Bus Éireann and implementing positive changes to achieve this remains our focus.

We are actively implementing our Gender identity policy which was designed to encourage dialogue and understanding of transgender issues in the workplace. This policy reinforces Bus Éireann’s commitment as an employer to cultivate a workplace that champions diversity and equality, supporting all employees. Access our policy by clicking here.

It’s a journey, and we are making great strides – but it doesn’t stop here. We’re going for gold and won’t rest until we get there.
