Workforce monitoring and equality research

As part of the work responding to the Public Sector Equality Duty, North Kesteven District Council has produced a Workforce Equality Profile to help us understand key equality issues in our workforce. Collecting and monitoring data on the diversity of our workforce allows us to examine how our employment practices and processes are working, so areas where these appear to be impacting disproportionately on certain groups of staff can be identified.

The publication of equality information is designed to make decision-making more transparent and help to explain how and why decisions have been made. Equality information can also help to understand patterns and trends and the effects of the Council’s policies and practices.
