There are groups of potential candidates in your community who could help you to address your workforce supply challenges, now and in the future. Do you know who they are?
In order to help employers think about recruiting from these groups, NHS Employers has today (1 November) launched a new digital tool to help you compare your current workforce data with data from your local community.
The aim of the tool is to highlight groups in your community that may be missing from your workforce, and will signpost you to advice on how to better attract, recruit and retain from these groups in order to strengthen your workforce supply.
In addition to providing a comparative analysis for age, disability, ethnicity, gender, religion and belief and sexual orientation, the tool also shows the prevalence of wider groups in your local area that are not directly comparable with census data, including carers, care leavers and Armed Forces personnel.
