About People Who Work In Our Services
We collect and review information about people who work in our organisation to make sure that people have equal opportunities, are not discriminated against and have positive experiences of working here. Detailed information about people who work in STH can be found in the Annual Equality and Human Rights Report – Supplementary Information which is published in the Eliminating Discrimination, Advancing Equal Opportunity and Fostering Good Relations section of these web pages.

People who have Disabilities who work in our organisation
Between March 2011 and March 2012 we improved staff disability reporting. In March 2011 we had information for only 9.5% of staff by March 2012 this had increased to just under 35%. Of these staff 33% said they did not have a disability and 2% said they did have a disability.
The ethnicity of people who work in our organisation
The 2011 census information has recently been released so the table below shows the ethnicity of staff working in STH compared to the population of Sheffield. There are a couple of things to note when looking at this data, the Sheffield population data is for all ages whereas the STH data covers working age people only and the census data includes two ethnicities that have been collected only for the 2011 census, these are blanked out for STH because we do not include these ethnicities specifically at the moment when we ask staff about ethnicity.
|Ethnicity||Sheffield Teaching Hospitals March 2012||Sheffield Population Census 2011|
|Other ethnic group: Arab||1.50%|
|Mixed White & Black Caribbean||0.35%||1.00%|
|Mixed White & Asian||0.38%||0.60%|
|Mixed White & Black African||0.36%||0.20%|
|White Gypsy or Irish Traveller||0.10%|
|Not stated /Not Known||1.46%||0.00%|
