Step 1 of 3 33% Diversity monitoring formAs public sector employers, colleges are required to collect details about their employees’ age, disabilities, ethnicity, gender, religious beliefs and sexual orientation. This is to ensure they meet their statutory requirements and to encourage the recruitment and development of a diverse workforce that represents the communities they serve. This information is collected to fulfil this obligation, and monitor our effectiveness of our equality and diversity work, and is an essential part of both these goals. The data we gather lets us know how the diversity of our workforce compares with the population in general as well as central government guidelines, and shows where adjustments need to be made to match these figures. It will also let us monitor, year on year, the progress of various diversity groups through their careers to judge whether everyone has the same opportunities open to them. The information on this form is strictly confidential and the related data will be used as part of statistical considerations for planning and development purposes as mentioned above. Access to any related files will be compliant with the Data Protection Act 1988. It will be used by our Human Resources team to produce statistical information anonymously and in aggregate only.Some examples of where diversity information is used: Recruitment: To ensure the College is providing equal pay for equal tasks, independent of gender, ethic origin or disability. Pay and Reward: To ensure the College is providing equality of opportunity to be considered for promotion across the entire organisation. Promotion: To ensure the College is providing equality of opportunity to be considered for promotion across the entire organisation.
