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
- 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.
