The employee relations data of a large NHS Trust identified that their Black Asian Minority Ethnic (BAME) staff along with women at certain grades were having a hard time getting through the internal interview processes to progress within the Trust.
The data also found that BAME staff did not get annual appraisals as much as white staff (even though appraisals are mandatory for all staff).
The Trust has a global reputation for its clinical excellence but there is disquiet on the Board that the senior roles (both clinician and non-clinician) are not representative. There is a sense that they are not tapping in to the diverse talents within the Trust.
As a public body the Trust has duties to eliminate discrimination and to promote equality and good relations between groups. The Board are keen that the equality principles are translated into practice throughout the Trust. They not only want to comply with the law but they want the Trust to be seen as a beacon of best practice in the NHS promoting equal opportunities for all.
You are the HR Manager of the Trust. The HR Director of the Trust has tasked you to produce a report toaddress each area ofthe employee relations data that has been identified.as an area of concern. Those areas are:
The internal interview processes
BAME annual appraisals
You will need to suggest possible solutions on how the Trust can tackle these areas within a five year time scale.
The HR Director is clear that your report should not only show how the Trust will comply with the legislation but how it intends to bring about change that utilises the potential strengths and talents of BAME and women staff that are being over looked within the Trust.

Indeed you are reminded that, “discrimination on the grounds of race, sex, or any other marker is poor business regardless of one’s moral view “Gary Becker (1975) Human Capital: a theoretical & empirical analysis.
