EQIA Summary

The scope of this EQIA is the People and Policy group’s ‘Mission 3’, which focusses on the HEO talent pipeline.

To optimise registration performance and capacity, the introduction of a new temporary promotion pathway is planned to help increase HEO capacity to tackle the most complex open casework.

This pathway will be based on productivity and quality data, and performance data provided by Employee Relations (ER) as well as manager input and qualification. Colleagues identified as being suitable candidates during the process will be approached and offered a temporary 12-month promotion to HEO level.

With no modifications in place, we have identified the potential for negative impacts across several groups with protected characteristics, however the controls included as part of the process suitably mitigate these potential impacts.

The process could have a potential positive impact on younger colleagues as there is no length of service requirement for them to be eligible for consideration.
