Workforce profile as at March, 2016
To help meet our obligations under the Equality Act 2010 we hold employee personal information which helps us to ensure employment practices are free from discrimination. The information allows us to monitor trends and make changes to policies, practices and procedures where necessary.
To do this we have to rely on the equalities information provided to us by our employees, as the disclosure of this information is voluntary and they can choose not to do so.
An annual data quality check is carried out in order to validate the information we hold and we also use this annual data quality check as an opportunity to encourage staff to disclose equalities information to help improved the data we hold.
At Newark and Sherwood District Council we use the Greater London Job Evaluation Scheme which ensures all our jobs are objectively assessed to determine the appropriate grade. This ensures that all of our jobs are graded appropriately according to the knowledge and skills required to carry out the duties of the post and helps eliminate equalities issues.
We have been awarded the ‘Two Tick’ disability symbol user status, which recognises our commitment to increasing the number of disabled people we employ. We are also a mindful employer and support age positive job applications.
