Diversity Benchmark 
The Business in the Community Diversity Benchmark measures age, gender and race workplace diversity. The benchmark is a management tool to help organisations evaluate their performance, including peer comparisons, and inform evidence-based decision-making around workplace diversity. 

Participants benefit from: bespoke feedback and recommendations that support with practical steps for improving performance; identification of strengths and weaknesses by peer comparison; and a confidential score and banding (Platinum, Gold, Silver or Bronze) that reflect performance.

We offer a continuous benchmarking service. There is no submission deadline. Instead, participants have the flexibility to benchmark whenever best suits their internal processes, resource capacities and reporting cycles.  This process gives participants the best of both worlds – the flexibility to complete the benchmark when it suits them, and ongoing access to the most current version of their peer group benchmark data.
