Equal Opportunities Monitoring Form

  • Open Road are committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which all decisions are based on merit. We do not discriminate against staff on the basis of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital or civil partner status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation (protected characteristics). As a recovery-focused organisation we welcome applicants and staff with a direct or indirect experience of recovery and do not discriminate on the basis of recovery status.
  • Identity

    We keep monitoring strictly confidential but it is not anonymous. This record will be kept securely by HR and used for monitoring purposes and to ensure fairness and access to opportunity.
  • Age monitoring

    Age discrimination regulations are designed to ensure you re judged only by your abilities and not your age. Greater experience does not always associate itself with greater ability and neither does older age and inability to learn new skills. By monitoring age we seek to uncover these and other assumptions in the way we work.
  • Monitoring ethnicity

    The following sets out categories for monitoring ethnicity. We ask you to respond to this information request positively as it will help us ensure that our policies and procedures do not inadvertently discriminate against you because of your ethnicity. Open Road assures you that any information you provide here will only be used to monitor the effectiveness of our policies and we will take steps to ensure this information remains confidential to our HR team.
  • Please describe your ethnicity by choosing ONE section from A to F, and then tick the appropriate box

  • Disability monitoring

    To make positive changes, we want to address the different barriers faced by disabled people. Many people who do not consider themselves to be disabled may be covered by the Equality Act 2010 because they have a health condition that has an impact on their lives.
  • What do we mean when we say disability?

    • Do you have a physical or mental impairment?
    • Is it long term?
    • Does this make it difficult for you to do the things that most people do on a fairly regular and frequent basis?

    Employees and applicants with a disability or health condition are entitled by law to reasonable adjustments to address their needs for support in the workplace.  Therefore we are interested in any disability or health condition that may require a reasonable adjustment to overcome any such barriers.  Open Road is committed to creating an environment where barriers are removed for disabled people and they can give their best to succeed in our organisation.

    • If you are a job applicant and would like to discuss your response, or are unsure of the types of reasonable adjustment that might be possible during the recruitment process, please contact the HR team.
    • If you are already employed by Open Road, and would like to discuss your response, or are unsure of the types of reasonable adjustment that might be possible in the workplace, please contact the HR team or your line manager who will be happy to support you.

    Any information you share with us about your disability or long term health condition will be kept confidential within HR.

  • Gender monitoring

    Concentrations of either men or women into certain jobs, and the impact of family commitments are some reasons why men and women experience the workplace differently. Gender monitoring is key to ensuring that all employees have access to the same opportunities and Open Road is committed to achieving this. In asking about gender, we recognise that it is a word often used in place of the work “sex” in equality issues. Open Road is asking about the gender you identify with and accepts that this may be different from that assigned at birth.
  • Marital Status

  • Sexual orientation

    Monitoring sexual orientation in our staff and in our recruits is a significant step towards acknowledging gay, lesbian and bisexual staff within Open Road. Please help us by completing the following questions around your sexual orientation. Please note we will only use this information for ensuring our staff policies work fairly for all and that your sexual orientation does not count against you.
  • Religion and belief

    Open Road is committed to ensuring fairness and equal access to all employees whatever their faith or beliefs. Below is a list of religions that are most commonly found in Britain. They are listed in alphabetical order and not intended to signify rank in terms of importance. Furthermore, we acknowledge that the list is not exhaustive and if your religion is not specifically listed then we ask you not to take offence as none was intended.
  • Recovery experience

    Open Road is a recovery-focused organisation committed to achieving improved recovery outcomes for our service users. Monitoring recovery experience in our staff and in our recruits is a significant step towards acknowledging recovery experience within Open Road. Please help us by completing the following questions around your recovery experience. We will only use this information to ensure our policies and procedures work fairly for all and that your recovery status does not count against you.
  • Thank you for completing this form.

    If you are a job applicant, please be assured that the monitoring data will only be used for equality monitoring and not as part of the selection process. If you are an existing member of the team, please be assured that we monitor to get an accurate picture of the organisation and to identify and address any inequalities.
