Equality watch: Equality monitoring report 2018-19

We are proud to publish our annual Equality Watch Report 2018/19 which provides information on our workforce in accordance with the Equality Acts (2010) Public Sector Equality Duty which came into force in April 2011. Under the Equality Act 2010 we have a statutory duty to ensure that we considers the needs of all individuals in their day to day work – in shaping policy, delivering services and in relation to ouor employees. The Act requires all public sector bodies to publish annual information to demonstrate their compliance with the general equality duty.

This report helps monitor our progress on achieving a workforce that is representative of the borough’s resident population. The statistical analysis also provides information on the areas where under-representation is apparent and helps us to identify positive actions.

The report is designed to offer a snapshot on our workforce information. We remain one of the biggest employers in the borough with 68% of our employees living in the borough.
