Workforce Race Equality Standard

The Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) requires all NHS Trusts to highlight the levels of equality in their workforce.

The report demonstrates progress against a number of indicators of workforce equality, including a specific indicator to address BME Board representation.

The standard was introduced in July 2015.

BCHC believes in fairness for all employees and patients regardless of their ethnic origin.  We are pleased to have published our second Workforce Race equality Report (WRES) and we look forward to engaging staff around this strategy, which we believe will go a long way to providing a level playing field for our workforce, which is our most valuable resource.
