Workforce Disability Equality Standard
The Workforce Disability Equality Standard, (WDES), is a set of specific measures, (metrics), that allows us to compare the experiences of disabled and non-disabled staff.
The WDES helps us to maintain a motivated, included and valued workforce, which in turn helps us to deliver high quality patient care, increased patient satisfaction and improve patient safety.
Gender Pay Gap
Gender Pay Gap legislation requires all employers of 250 or more employees to publish their gender pay gap as at 31st March. The 2018 data is based on a snapshot date of 31st March 2018. The information is sourced from the Electronic Staff Record (ESR) system, which holds our employee data. The information has also been submitted to the Governments Gender Pay Gap reporting portal.

Disability Confident Employer
We are a proud employer and promoter of the Disability Confident scheme and we are a recognised Disability Confident employer. This means we are committed to good practice in employing disabled people and we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for any post advertised, providing the applicant has indicated on the application that they have a disability in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.
The Trust promotes and supports the employment of people who use our services. As a matter of good practice, we have service user and carer representation in our recruitment processes. We are also committed to supporting disabled people in the workplace and promoting disability confidence in the Trust.
Stonewall Diversity Champions
We are part of the Stonewall Diversity Champions programme and have been since 2011. This means we are one of more than 750 organisations that work hard to make sure all LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender) staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.
We share the Stonewall core belief that a workplace that is truly equal is a powerful workplace and we aim to create inclusive and accepting environments for our workforce.
Each year we take part in the Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index to demonstrate our progress and achievement in ten areas of employment policy and practice. Our workforce also has the opportunity to complete a survey anonymously to share their experiences of diversity and inclusion at work.
