Best Practise when monitoring diversity?

Hi folks,

 

The company I work for are looking to undergo a diversity monitoring exercise for a workforce of around 1000 - 2000 employees.

 

We'd like some insight into how other companies conduct these types of exercises.

 

 

Firstly, we have some questions around anonymity:

 

- What have you found to be the best level of anonymity when collecting data?

 

- Do you find anonymity increases participation in the survey?

 

- Do you attach this data to the employee so that it follows them through their lifecycle with the company?

 

- Do you use 'Prefer not to say'?

 

 

Secondly around methods of data collection:

 

- How does your company collect this data?

 

- How often do you update this data?

 

- What methods do you use to encourage participation?

 

- Do you use electronic, hard copy or a mixture of the two for questionnaires? Which has a higher response rate?

 

 

Finally, general questions:

- Any general tips or hurdles to be noted?

 

- Any 3rd party companies who you would recommend when conducting this exercise?

 

- Where have you based your questionnaires wording/content from?

 

I’d really appreciate any advice and insight that you could give.

    The best place to start is the EHRC website which is full of information ,guidance and tools. There are many consultants who can advise/assist you with this but before commissioning I suggest you are clear in what you are trying to achieve,why and over what time period. You may well find you can do it yourself. Good luck and come back to me if I can help further. David
