This metric is based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) G4 Guidelines. It covers part of the requirements of G4-LA12 - 'composition of governance bodies and breakdown of employees per employee category according to gender, age group, minority group membership, and other indicators of diversity'. This metric asks for percentage of total employees who are female.

This Indicator provides a quantitative measure of diversity within an organization and can be used in conjunction with sectoral or regional benchmarks. The level of diversity within an organization provides insights into the human capital of the organization. Comparisons between broad workforce diversity and management team diversity also offer information on equal opportunity. Detailed information on the composition of the workforce also helps in assessing which issues may be of particular relevance to certain segments of the workforce.


Methodology

The total number of employees should match that reported in G4-10 metric.

To calculate the total percentage employees by gender - G4-LA12-b:

  • Identify the total number of employees within each category by gender.
  • Calculate percentage and include calculation in comments.

For further Guidance see the employee category definition. 

Include additional reported percentages (by employees per category) in the comments:

  • Age group: under 30 years old, 30-50 years old, over 50 years old
  • Minority groups (E.g. Percentage of disabled employees)
  • Other indicators of diversity where relevant
