Benchmarking 2013 Top Ten Employers

Welcome to Action and Achievement, our analysis of the trends and data from our 2013 benchmark. Our benchmark is the most comprehensive survey available for gender and race equality in the workplace. Introduction By using the Opportunity Now and Race for Opportunity benchmarking tools to help analyse their workplace practices and cultures, employers are better able to drive change, make equality a reality and reap the business benefits of getting it right. Each organisation that completes the benchmark survey gets a bespoke and in-depth analysis report on how well their organisation is doing on diversity, equality and inclusion. The organisations below represent the top ten from both the private and public sectors. A suite of documents are available at Benchmarking Trends Analysis 2013 that give an overview of how the most successful companies are achieving their diversity goals.

Opportunity Now

The best performing benchmarking organisations have some characteristics in common. On gender: They will carry out regular pay audits, and implement best practice in pay systems to remove bias. They will have a very senior diversity champion with a gender remit, and they will publically report targets for board composition, and publically report their workforce gender composition. There will be unconscious bias training for all involved in recruitment. On race: They will track the promotion rates of all employees by ethnicity, and will have an up to date business case and a race strategy that is signed off by the board. There will be board level accountability, and a very senior diversity champion with a race remit. There will be unconscious bias training for all involved in recruitment. They will publically report an ethnic breakdown on their workforce composition.
