Pay Gap Reporting

We publicly report the pay gap across gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation at CerebralFix as a part of the Mind the Gap initiative

Why we share our pay gap data

At CerebralFix, we believe that acknowledging and addressing pay disparities is key to creating a more equitable workplace for all. By publicly reporting pay gaps on, we not only hold ourselves accountable, but also contribute to the broader conversation surrounding equality in the workforce.

Our commitment to transparency reflects our core values, and we are dedicated to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion within our company and beyond.

We do a thorough analysis of pay gaps at CerebralFix across gender, ethnicity, and sexual orientation in partnership with our internal diversity and inclusion committee that we call CerebralFix Pride Pals. The report on this data is updated annually and you can download the full report by clicking the link at the bottom of this page.

How we report data

Gender identification (female, male, other), ethnicity (Asian, European, Māori, Other Ethnicity), and sexual orientation (LGBTTQIA+, non-LGBTTQIA+) are self-identified by employees and reporting is voluntary.

Seniority levels and remuneration are determined by an individual’s average tenure/length of skilled experience, core skills, secondary skills, technical ability, and leadership skills. 

In the 2024 dataset specifically, there is small sample size of individuals who identify as 'Other Gender' at the senior level. This sample size is too small for statistical significance, and as a result has created an unusually large disparity in pay at this level. Despite the sample size not being large enough to be statistically significant, we have elected to show the full dataset and not to omit any data points from the analysis. 

What we are proud of in 2024

  • The gender pay gap for women at CerebralFix (2.6%) is less than half of the national average (8.6%).
  • Women make up a greater percentage of the CerebralFix staff (33%) than they do in the New Zealand game development industry as a whole (22%). 
  • 18% of CerebralFix staff identify as LGBTQIA+, which is significantly higher than the wider New Zealand game development industry (10%).
  • People who identify as LGBTQIA+ at CerebralFix make 2.6% more than those who do not identify as LGBTQIA+.
  • Māori people who work at CerebralFix make 5.3% more than non-Māori.

Our Commitment

We are committed to reporting annually on our pay gap analysis.

We are committed to building a committee that will meet twice a year to review the analysis and make suggestions for positive action to the Senior Leadership Team at CerebralFix. This committee will be representative of different genders, sexual orientations, and ethnicities where possible.
