NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES)

NHS Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is a set of 9 metrics that will enable KMPT to focus on objectives to ensure employees from Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic (BAME) backgrounds have equal access to career opportunities, fair treatment within recruitment & selection, training and development, retention and progression in the workplace. KMPT will demonstrate that staff from BAME backgrounds is not purposefully disadvantaged by disciplinary processes, bullying, harassment and abuse and that there are aims to ensure that talent/potential are harnessed and developed in a mutually beneficial manner. KMPT will respond appropriately to issues identified through data collated on the WRES template.
