Annex A: Comparison between 2012 and 2017 characteristics

The equality impact assessment for the Transforming our Workplace project (which preceded the Smarter Workplaces Programme) was used to inform the evidence base for this Equality Impact Assessment. This annex shows the comparison between the 2012 data included in the Transforming our Workplace (ToW) project EQIA and an extract from November 2017.

In general there is no significant change in the distributions between 2012 and 2017.

Age

Although there has been some change in the age demographics across the estate there is no significant difference from the ToW EqIA.

Grade

Figure 2 shows that, in general across all grades (except A3 and SCS) there has been an increase. Grade not known are generally contractors. This shows that the organisation has grown since 2012.

Disability

Figure 3 illustrates that there has been a slight increase in those identifying themselves as disabled between 2012 and 2017, and a decrease in those identifying themselves as not disabled.

Gender

Figure 4 shows that overall there has been a slight increase in the proportion of the overall workforce that is female, and a reduction in the overall proportion which is male.

Working pattern

Although there has been some slight changes in working pattern, there are no significant differences from the ToW EQIA.

Sexual Orientation

Note that the recording of sexual orientation has improved since 2012, therefore the data is not directly comparable.

Race

Figure 7: Race comparison 2012 and 2017

Although there have been some slight changes, there are no significant differences from the ToW EQIA.

Religion

The data between 2012 and 2017 is not comparable but the distribution in 2017 is given in Figure 8.
