Equality statement 2024

Our employment equality priorities for 2024

We will undertake the following actions in 2024:

  • We will continue to assess key workforce policies and procedures to ensure they are accessible and easy to understand.
  • We will continue to collect, analyse, and publish key workforce data which will feed into our workforce development plans and support how we develop and attract the workforce of the future.
  • We will continue to increase the number of staff that successfully complete equality awareness and safeguarding training.
  • We will host face to face equality and diversity training for all members of staff.
  • We will continue to encourage staff to create inclusion groups and support existing groups to thrive.
  • We will update and review our internal equality and diversity documents and information.
  • We will produce an updated inclusive calendar for employees that provides insight to various observance and events days and dates throughout the year.
  • We will incorporate LWMTs staff data in our workforce data profile.
  • Continue to encourage greater diversity across our workforce, with a particular focus on our operational team and joint waste team (which services both Lichfield District and Tamworth Borough councils), and where we are keen to continue our work to create a more diverse employee profile that welcomes and offers opportunities for all.
