Workforce race equality standard – 2021/22
Date: October 2022
The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) was mandated through the NHS’ standard contract in April 2015: all NHS organisations are required to publish their performance data and action plans against nine indicators of the WRES and make them public.
Consequently, this report presents the Tavistock and Portman’s 2021-22 WRES data and associated Action Plan. It provides an overview of the Trust’s scores on workplace inequalities between Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) and their White counterparts through nine WRES key indicators that focus on workforce composition and people management, recruitment, bullying and harassment and discrimination as well as BME representation at Board level – see full details of the WRES indicators in Appendix 1. The report identifies where improvements have been made, where data has stagnated or deteriorated and suggests counter-measures for ameliorating the gaps.
