Following the launch of our diversity survey, which is being undertaken jointly by Women in Rail and the National Skills Academy for Rail, in its intelligence gathering role, as part of our commitment to achieving the main aims of the Rail Sector Skills Delivery Plan; we want to thank those who have completed and remind those who have yet to do so.
The survey is the first of its kind as it attempts to not only identify the male: female ratio and the skills gaps within our sector but also to accurately survey the diversity characteristics of its workforce.
It is a very important initiative for our industry and we would be grateful for you kind your help in gathering the necessary data.
The survey is conducted via survey monkey https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/YSCZVWB
It consists of 12 questions, 10 of which are mandatory. It should take you no more than 15 minutes to complete.
We would be very grateful if you were able to complete it before the end of August, so we can analyse the results, draw up some conclusions and action points and report back to industry before the end of the calendar year.
All answers will remain confidential and the results will be grouped by category. No individual companies will be identified.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact any of us and we will endeavour to help you.
Once again, thank you in advance for your kind help. It is very much appreciated.
