Equal Employment Opportunity Annual Report – 1996 Appendix 3

Collection of Statistics

Since the establishment of the EEO database in 1987, statistics on staff have been kept up-to-date through the voluntary completion of an EEO New Appointment form by new recruits. At end June 1996 statistics were available for 97 per cent of Bank staff.

During the year, statistics were collected by EEO group on average incomes, salary ranges and classification levels, occupational groups, age distribution and staff movements (recruitment, transfers, promotions and resignations). Where available, information was also collected from external organisations for comparative purposes. Other statistics, collected predominantly by gender, include participation in training/development and study, composition of selection panels, resumptions and resignations following parental leave, use of carer's leave, exit interview data, nature of grievances reported to Grievance Authority, and incidence of part-time work.

A new computerised personnel information system, expected to become operative in December 1996, should improve the reporting and analysis of EEO data.
