Equality Mainstream and Workforce Data Report

17/04/15 | NSS Headquarters

NSS recognises the importance of monitoring equality and diversity in the workforce as it enables us to examine how our employment policies and processes are working and to identify areas where these appear to be impacting disproportionately on certain groups of staff.

It is necessary to meet legislative requirements, provide the basis for showing ‘due regard’ and can lead to the development of better and more informed, inclusive decision making, including decisions on recruitment and promotion. Effective monitoring also helps us minimise possible legal, financial and reputational harm. The purpose of collecting equality information is to look at the differences between groups, identify trends over periods of time, to investigate the reasons for these differences and to implement the appropriate action to mitigate any potential negative impact.
