Equality and diversity monitoring as at 31 march 2012

Summary

  • This report is designed to give an insight into the Trust’s Equality and Diversity profile As At 31 March 2012.

  • The report will cover 6 protected characteristics of equality:

  • Age, Religion and Belief, Disability, Gender, Ethnicity and Sexual Orientation. (other comparators have been used to highlight trends i.e. pay and working patterns)

  • Page 4 - The Trust appears more diverse than the immediate local areas, and less diverse than the whole of England with the exception of the Asian minority group. However it should be noted that the locality data available is from mid 2009 and may not be a true reflection of the population today.

  • Ethnic groups account for:

    • Trust 10% of total workforce – page 5

    • Staff survey data 10% of respondents - page 6

    • St Edmundsbury7% of Total, EOE 10% of Total, England Population 13% of Total (data available 2009)– page 8

  • Page 6 - 2010 Staff Survey - The Trust improved it E&D training from 22% to 38%. In addition the trust is in the Top 20% of acute trusts for providing equal opportunities for career progression and not experiencing discrimination at work.

  • Page 7 - Whilst the White British group make up 88% of the staff overall, this is not necessarily reflected within staff groups e.g. –

    • Admin and Clerical has a greater proportion (98%) than overall

    • Medical & Dental has a lesser proportion (59%) than overall

  • Pages 9 – 11Recruitment data – The number of appointments split between white groups and minority groups roughly reflects the Trusts ethnicity split (p5) and, the proportion of minority groups drops considerably throughout the recruitment process. However in 2012 the number of ethnic minority shortlisted applicants has increased by 5% and to date the Trust has not received any complaints of discrimination within the recruitment process either externally or internally.

  • Page 14- 80 % of the Trust's workforce is female, with the majority of these working in Nursing, Admin and Healthcare Support posts. Males have a very slight majority in the medical & dental roles. Although only 14% of admin & management staff are male, 37% of senior managers are male.(band 8 and above)

  • The Trusts Executive Directors are predominantly female, whilst the Non Executive Directors are predominantly Male

  • pages 19 – 20 The average age for the Trusts is 43, the average length of service (LOS) is almost 9 years

    • over half of the workforce of the workforce fall within the 36 – 55 age bracket.

    • Of the over fifties, over half are already over 55.

    • There are 154 employees over 60, none of these are over 70

  • Page 22 - 23Pay by gender – split roughly reflects the male/female ratio of the Trust with the exception of band 8c where the trend is reversed, with 70% male to 30% female. Pay by ethnicity – interestingly there appears to be no disclosed minority groups in Bands 4, 8b, 8c, 8d and 9.

    Gender by Population Area

    The chart shows that England and the locality has roughly a 50:50 split of male: female, however the Trust has a significantly higher proportion of females, this has remained constant over a number of years.

    The proportion of employees participating in the staff survey reflects that of the Trust

    Disability Monitoring

    • Limited benchmarking data is available on the number of people who “believe they have a disability”

    • Locality information* is based on “people claiming incapacity benefit or severe disablement allowance”

    • Trust information is based on employees who have declared they have a disability and roughly reflects locality data

    • * Note definition of disability for Local Authority statistics = "people claiming incapacity benefit or severe disablement allowance"

    16


    Equality and diversity monitoring as at 31 march 2012

    Religion & Belief, Sexual orientation

    There is no benchmarking data for these characteristics, however as part of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) the Trust has an obligation to eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation

    Equality and diversity monitoring as at 31 march 2012

    Performance Management Monitoring

    As part of the Trusts processes for equality monitoring the Workforce and Communications Directorate record all formal investigations for Disciplinary, Capability and Grievance matters. The factors being monitored are Age, Ethnicity, Gender and Disability to identify any trends that indicate discrimination. Sickness Absence is monitored separately.

    In 2011/2012 the department conducted a total of 30 formal investigations:-

    16 Disciplinary Cases*

    10 Capability Cases

    3 Grievance Cases

    1 Bullying and Harassment Case

    Our analysis shows that 5 of the 30 cases listed above 26 involved White British Staff and 4 were ethnic minorities. None of the cases above concerned an employee with a disability.

    .

    Disciplinary Cases 16

    The proportion of disciplinary cases between male and female staff is 12 female cases to 4 male cases. The ratio of male to female cases remains in line with the organisations’ gender profile.

    Capability Cases 10

    Out of the 10 capability cases, all involved female staff and 1 of those was from an ethnic minority group. However, 6 out 10 are in the 50yr to 60yr age group.

    Grievance Cases 3

    Two cases have been resolved and one is still under investigation with a final report being submitted to the Chief Executive by 30th June 2012.

    Bullying and Harassment Case 1

    Case resolved.

    *Two of the these cases have been reported to the Nursing and Midwifery Council.
