Diversity and Inclusion Monitoring Form
Private and Confidential
YMCA DownsLink Group is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
We are committed to the active promotion of equal opportunities, both in the provision of services and as an employer of paid and unpaid workers.
To help us monitor our equal opportunities & diversity/inclusion policy in recruitment and selection procedures, please complete the following questionnaire.
The information you provide does not form part of the selection procedure; it is used only for monitoring purposes and in accordance with Equality legislation. The results of this form will be separated from your application form before short listing.
Who has access to this information?
Information provided on this form is kept strictly confidential at all times, with restricted access in Human Resources. It is used for monitoring purposes only, in line with our employer commitments. Data will be used in statistical format only and not be used to identify individuals.
What happens to the monitoring information gathered?
The information is stored on the recruitment database and used for recruitment and selection purposes. This ensures that all applicants are treated fairly and appointed solely on their suitability for the role. If you are appointed, the information will be transferred on to your computerised personal record to enable us to meet our workforce monitoring requirements.
Why does YMCA DownsLink Group monitor its recruitment and workforce?
We have specific duties as an employer to monitor our workforce, with data being published each year. This assists us in responding to anti-discrimination legislation and any potential discrimination or inequality in the workplace.
Gender and Gender Identity:
This is an optional category that supports our duty as an employer to promote gender equality in the workforce, and to eliminate discrimination and harassment of transgender people.
The categories of ethnic origin reflect those chosen by the Office for National Statistics (ONS).
Under the Equality Act (2010) a person is considered disabled if they:
- Have a physical or mental impairment
- This impairment has an adverse effect which is substantial
- The effect is long-term (usually lasting, or likely to last, 12 months or more)
- The impairment has an adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities
Certain conditions such as Cancer, HIV and Multiple Sclerosis do not require there to be a long term effect, but qualify from the point of diagnosis.
