Knowing our workforce

We want to ensure our workforce has the same opportunities to reach their potential, free from barriers, prejudice and discrimination.

By recruiting and retaining high-calibre individuals from a range of social backgrounds, we're able to reflect the diversities of the communities we serve in our workforce. 

To achieve this, we collect equality information on the recruitment and make-up of our staff to help us track our progress. This includes meeting our requirements under the Public Sector Equality Duty.

What do we look at?

We look at a number of features, including:

  • Workforce composition
  • Recruitment
  • Employment casework
  • Access to learning and development opportunities
  • Employee satisfaction – staff survey.

In particular, this analysis enables us to identify any differences in outcomes for different staff groups.
