Measuring up: your community and your workforce


This tool has been developed to help you understand the different community groups in your local population, and understand how you can better engage with, recruit and retain people from these groups. It will compare your workforce data to your local population, to help you identify groups that might be underrepresented in your workforce.

Before you get started

The tool will provide a comparative analysis for disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, religion and ethnicity. It also provides information on wider groups in your local area such as carers, veterans and care leavers, which you could potentially engage with to increase your workforce supply.

  • Before you use the tool, we suggest having your workforce data to hand.
  • Download our data capture sheet to collate your data, ready for comparison.
  • Make your way through the tool, view your comparative data and the data from wider community groups.
  • Once you have your results, read the resources and guidance to help you engage with potential candidates in your local area.
