HSE diversity survey statistics as at 31 March 2013

(The following results are based on staff in post (headcount) and exclude agency, temporary staff and inward secondees/loans. All data is from the HSE’s internal HR information system).

To further our commitment to ensure equality across our workforce, from 2010, HSE staff were given the opportunity to declare their sexual orientation and their religion or belief.  The following tables reflect all the different diversity information that we have available via an electronic HR system. All ‘diversity declaration data’ is self- service.
