Coleg y Cymoedd uses equality data to understand its workforce profile, to enable us to develop a better understanding of what our staff need in order to work, perform and enjoy life at the College.
By collecting and monitoring data we will further enhance our work to develop a more comprehensive picture of the College, and we are able to assess the impact of our policies on staff and target areas of under-representation, offering information and support appropriately.
The College's HR and Payroll on-line system, Team Spirit, allows all employees to have control of their monitoring data and staff are able to update their own profile by accessing the self service function.
The information we gather relates to the nine 'protected characteristics' as identified in the Equality Act 2010: age, disability, gender, gender identity, race, religion or belief, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity.
All personal information held on staff is sourced and maintained securely and confidentially.
A guide produced by Stonewall "What's it got to do with you" is a very informative summary leaflet on why it's important to provide and collect information and data. You can access this guide here...
