Benchmarking is a useful management tool to measure the performance of your graduate recruitment programme. In difficult trading conditions such as those we are experiencing across many UK industry sectors competition has becomes more intense. Allied to an increasingly competitive landscape there is continued competition for graduates, particularly for engineering and technology roles. Many organisations understand that their immediate priority during these times is to focus their business in order to maintain competitive advantages and deliver the necessary results. Therefore one of the main challenges facing graduate recruitment managers in this situation is to perform better than their toughest competitors.
Equality benchmarking provides a simple, robust, management tool that is accessible by the non-expert and provides graduate recruitment executives with the capability to understand how their graduate recruitment programmes performs against the wider university population.
The essential first steps for benchmarking graduate recruitment are to identify both what the key measures of current equality performance are and also just how good your current performance is. The Graduate Recruitment Equality Benchmarking Report
acts as a first step toward understanding how your recruitment programme rates for equality in terms of gender, ethnicity, age and disability against national averages. The brief enables you to concentrate on setting realistic and achievable targets for improvements in critical business areas, providing improvement and competitive advantage.
The brief also provide a comparison of SET (Science Engineering and Technology) university students as a proportion of the wider UK university population. These statistics will help you understand how the equality make-up of your graduate intake rates against the wider university population through benchmarking of key areas.
