The 2016 report is the second publication since the Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) was mandated and covers all nine indicators for the first time.
The report has three key roles:
- To enable organisations to compare their performance with others in their region and those providing similar services, with the aim of encouraging improvement by learning and sharing good practice
- To provide a national picture of WRES in practice, to colleagues, organisations and the public on the developments in the workforce race equality agenda
- To share summaries of what works, good examples and recognising organisations which, at this early stage of WRES implementation, are making progress against the indicators
