Data source
Resource Management.
Time period and availability
Latest data covers the period from 1 April 2012 to 31 March 2013.
What does this tell us?
The data presented here show employees promoted against their status in relation to each of the following protected characteristics: age; disability; ethnicity; and gender.
The percentage of promotions for ethnic minority employees and females are close to the corresponding headcounts, suggesting similar behaviour. The percentage of promotions for disabled employees are distorted by the declaration rate and the associated volumes which mean the results must be treated with caution.
Compared with the 2012 report, promotion percentages have increased overall and in all age groups.
How will an improvement be shown?
Broadly, an increase in the percentage of group promoted will constitute an improvement. However, other factors will need to be considered such as: staff volumes; declaration rates; and organisational changes.
