EQIA Summary

The scope of this EQIA is the implementation of the Check-In tool, as part of a refresh of the RoS performance management framework.

Potential negative impacts have been identified in relation to the protected characteristics of age and disability. These impacts are adequately mitigated by actions included in the proposal.

The proposal could have a significant positively impact across a number of protected characteristics through a more collaborative, flexible and continuous approach to performance management. Actions proposed will enhance this positive impact, but recommendations are made in relation to monitoring, reporting and targeting areas of low uptake.

The proposal could also contribute positively to all aspects of the public sector equality duty.
