The 2019 Workforce Race Equality Standard (WRES) is delivered through the workforce strategy but supported by this strategy. This is because ‘evidence suggests that improving
racial inequality in the workplace not only improves staff experience and organisational innovation but improves safety and outcomes for service users.’ The standard has the
following key roles:

  • To enable organisations to compare their performance with others in their region
  • Aim of encouraging improvement by learning and sharing good practice
  • To provide a national picture of WRES in practice to colleagues, organisations and the public on developments in the workforce race equality agenda
  • Nine indicators of staff experience and opportunity are reported nationally and figures are analysed to understand improvements
