Hampshire County Council aims to have a diverse workforce because we believe that our staff can be most effective when they mirror, and identify with, the people in Hampshire, who use our services.
Hampshire County Council continues to make progress in maintaining a diverse workforce and this is assessed through the Hampshire County Council’s Workforce Profile and Diversity Information (March 2012)
The Council works to maintain a robust approach to equality and diversity issues which supports us in complying with the Equality Act 2010. This act requires public bodies to have due regard to the need to eliminate discrimination, advance equality of opportunity and foster good relations between different people when carrying out their activities.
As a public sector body, the council has a duty to comply with the specific Public Sector Equality Duty that requires the publication of relevant and proportionate information to demonstrate how we are responding to the Equality Duty.
