In the June edition of our employers masterclass series, we will be exploring Data.
No matter where you are as an organisation on your journey to build inclusion in your workforce, data is key for you in understanding your current position and next steps to take. It also gives your organisation a way to measure the progress your efforts have made, as ultimately any intervention should be evaluated for its results.
Data can guide you through your outreach and hiring processes, as well as enabling you to monitor access to opportunities as people progress through your organisation.
Understanding what to measure for socio-economic diversity is often the biggest barrier that employers face. This masterclass will answer those frequently asked questions from employers:
Why should we collect socio-economic background (SEB) data on our workforce?
What questions should we ask to determine SEB?
What might the data we collect show us?
And how can we increase our response rates?
We’ll be joined by Neil Morrison, Director of HR at Severn Trent plc who will be sharing how they have used SEB data to really understand the experience of their employees, right from tracking who is entering the workforce through to tracking performance ratings of colleagues – and subsequently taking steps to address any challenges.
