Collecting Employee Self-Identification Data in Global Environment

April 2019

The Business Case for Global Self-Id Data:

  • Self-identification data is critical to understanding inequalities, targeting diversity and inclusion policies and strategies, and monitoring the impact of remedies
  • Collecting employee self-id data across global operations enables companies to compare results, share experiences, and identify what works and what doesn’t for building equity and inclusion for specific groups in specific locations
  • Self-id data can help employers understand whether targeted actions to build workforce equity and inclusion have had measurable impact
  • The data also helps identify specific problems and barriers faced by marginalized employee groups and informs actions to mitigate those barriers
  • Collecting community-specific demographic data lets those employees know their experiences are taken seriously and positively impacts the motivation and performance of those employees
