DCA is currently working towards the release later in 2017 of the first ever national benchmarks for Australian workplaces in regards to the age, cultural background, disability status, gender, Indigenous background, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity of workers.
In this new intitiative sponsored by Suncorp, DCA, with Polity Research & Consulting Pty Ltd (Polity), will be conducting a new Inclusion@YourWork Index every two years to measure Australian organisations’ progress in creating inclusive workplaces.
In March 2017 invitations were issued to DCA member organisations who may be interested in participating in the inaugural Inclusion@YourWork Index. This opportunity will close on 30 June 2017.
The Index is a survey tool which:
- Measures your employees’ experience of workplace inclusion, and
- Compares your inclusion results with landmark national benchmarks on inclusion, which have been derived from a nationally represented survey of 3000 Australian workers.
By taking part in the initial Index, organisations are helping DCA track progress of inclusion made over time and have the opportunity to measure inclusion in your own workplace and compare findings to national benchmarks.
