Who is in Your Workforce?

Understand Who Is in Your Workforce & How They Feel.

Diversity Meter™

A robust assessment service designed to uncover the diverse composition of your organization's workforce and discover your employees' true sense of inclusion.

A thriving workforce sustains a thriving workplace.

Measuring your organization's demographics helps to ensure that the organization is meeting diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) goals. By understanding the demographics of the workforce, the organization can identify any disparities or imbalances and take action to address them. This can include initiatives such as hiring more diverse candidates, promoting inclusivity in the workplace, and ensuring equitable treatment and opportunities for all employees.

Second, measuring workplace demographics can help to identify areas where the organization may be facing talent shortages or skill gaps. By understanding the makeup of the workforce, the organization can take steps to attract and retain employees with the skills and backgrounds that are most needed.

Finally, measuring workplace demographics can also help to identify opportunities for growth and development. By understanding the backgrounds and experiences of employees, the organization can identify areas where additional training or support may be needed, as well as potential areas for employee advancement and leadership development.

This highly effective assessment service is designed to provide insight into your workforce's diverse composition enabling you to find out how your employees truly feel about their sense of belonging to your organization.

Leverage Data from 3 Unique Survey Modules

Diversity Meter offers 3 unique survey modules covering Diversity, Inclusion, and Employment Equity.

Each module is available in both Canadian English and French.

Diversity Census

Split into 2 distinct submodules — workplace and personal demographics — this module creates a profile of your organization by assessing your workforce based on roles and duration of employment, as well as 13 personal diversity dimensions. 

Inclusion Survey

This module identifies feelings of inclusion among your employees and allows you to compare one group’s experience of inclusion against others using the Diversity Census data.

Employment Equity Data Collection

This module gathers self-identification information as required under Canada’s Employment Equity Act and is used by employers subject to the Legislated Employment Equity Program or Federal Contractors Program. It includes questions for the four designated groups established under the Act: women, Aboriginal peoples, persons with disabilities, and members of visible minorities.

Collecting workplace demographics is important for several reasons. Here are some key reasons why: 

  1. Make data-driven decisions: Workplace demographics can provide valuable data that organizations can use to make data-driven decisions about diversity and inclusion initiatives.  
  2. Identify diversity gaps: Workplace demographics can provide information about the diversity of an organization's workforce, such as the gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability status, and other characteristics of employees. This information can help organizations identify diversity gaps and take steps to address them. 
  3. Ensure fairness: Collecting workplace demographics can help organizations ensure that their employment practices are fair and equitable. 
  4. Monitor progress: Collecting workplace demographics over time can help organizations track their progress in creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace. By comparing data over time, organizations can identify whether they are making progress toward their diversity and inclusion goals. Check out our Dynamic Demographics service offering! 
  5. Improves employee engagement: When employees feel included and valued, they are more likely to be engaged and committed to their work. By collecting and assessing employee sentiments of inclusion, organizations can identify areas where they need to improve to create a more inclusive workplace, which can lead to higher levels of employee engagement and retention. 
  6. Enhances diversity and inclusion efforts: Collecting and assessing employee sentiments of inclusion can help organizations identify where they need to focus their diversity and inclusion efforts. By analyzing the data, organizations can determine the root causes of any inclusion issues and develop targeted strategies to address them. 
  7. Demonstrates commitment to inclusion: Collecting and assessing employee sentiments of inclusion sends a message to employees that the organization is committed to creating an inclusive workplace where everyone feels valued and supported.
