HSE diversity survey statistics as at 31 March 2017

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.

HSE staff are given the opportunity to declare their diversity data via a ‘self-service’ electronic HR system. Please note the figures for disability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion and belief only include those who have chosen to declare their status; it does not include those who have chosen the option ‘Prefer not to say’. The following tables reflect all the diversity information that is available via this system
