What is e-quality?

e-quality is a pioneering tool designed by the Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (enei) to benchmark organisational performance in equality and diversity. It covers the nine protected groups defined in the Equality Act 2010 – as well as other groups such as carers and ex-offenders – and assesses performance in relation to five key areas of diversity. 

What are the benefits?  

  • It is the perfect way to be open about your  values to staff, customers, suppliers and other  key stake holders
  • Demonstrates the progress you are making in  embedding diversity in your business strategy  and plans
  • Enables you to compare yourself to other  organisations
  • Provides a cost effective “one stop shop” for  diversity benchmarking

How does it work?

e-quality assesses performance on key areas of diversity across the Protected Characteristics defined by the Equality Act 2010 (Age, Disability, Gender Reassignment, Marriage and Civil Partnership, Pregnancy and Maternity, Race, Religion or Belief, Sex and Sexual Orientation).

The key areas are: 

  • Organisational commitment and leadership
  • Knowing your workforce
  • Integrating equality, diversity and inclusion
  • External relations and suppliers
  • Organisational improvements 

e-quality is easy to use: 

  •  It is completed online using a simple secure  website
  • Questions can be forwarded to others in your organisation to complete
  • It can be completed in 2-3 hours and can be  done in stages, saving responses after each  session
  • After you have completed the questionnaire, your data is saved, so you will only have to make updates in subsequent years

What do I get?

  • e-quality reports your results on each key area,  together with the minimum, maximum and aver  age scores achieved by participating  organisations. An analysis of  answers creates a  detailed report which can inform your diversity  and inclusion action plans. 
  • You will receive an Executive Summary template  to enable easy presentation of the results to  your business leaders. 
  • You will also receive a certificate confirming your  participation and the ranking you achieved. 
  • The best entries will also be considered for an  enei Award 2016!
