Measuring our inclusion & diversity track record
In keeping with our agency commitment to inclusivity and diversity, conducting regular attitudinal staff surveys is a key indicator of progress. As is a commitment to publishing results on an on-going basis.
The most recent bi-annual survey (December 2020) found that 89% of our staff agree that diversity is valued at Once Upon a Time. The high percentage was also reflected in a sense of belonging and inclusivity, with over 80% of staff having a strong affinity
with the agency. This, of course, doesn’t mean we stop here. We are opening up more channels of communication within the agency to continue to listen to views at every level.
Moreover, I’m very happy to say that we have a good gender split in the agency and a healthy 50% male and 50% female split in senior management. In terms of future recruitment, we are reviewing our recruitment process to ensure that we are utilising the
most diverse portals available to us. In addition, we are working with the TBAP Multi-Academy Trust to give annual apprenticeships to job seekers who have been excluded from main-stream education.
