Workforce Diversity Data

As required by the Solicitors Regulation Authority Abels carried out a survey of workforce diversity during September 2015.  This was done on a completely voluntary basis and there was no requirement for any member of staff to take part.  Questionnaire forms were given to all members of staff and they were asked to answer various questions and to return those forms anonymously.  Just under 50% of the workforce returned completed questionnaires.

Out of those who responded to the questionnaires three people described themselves as partner, member or director of the firm, two as associates or assistants and six as other employees or staff members.  The age range of those who responded was spread fairly evenly between the age groups of 16 to 64.  Questionnaires were returned by eight female members of staff and three male members of staff.  With regard to questions concerning education nine people stated that they had been educated at a UK State School and two at a UK Independent Fee paying school.  Four of those who responded to the questionnaires stated that they were part of a first generation of family to go to university, six stated that they did not attend university.  All of those responding to the questionnaires indicated that they came from a white British background.

Four of the respondents to the questionnaires indicated that they were the primary carer for children under 18 but none of the twelve indicated that they suffered from a disability.
