The 2020-21 Human Capital Metrics Survey will soon open on for completion. This survey covers headcount and fte numbers, diversity, sickness, turnover and length of service. All surveys exclude schools’ employees. The period of the survey is 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021.

Changes This Time 

  • The guidance for which employees to include in the survey responses has been tweaked following feedback from users. The new guidance is to provide data on permanent employees – exclude fixed-term contract employees (unless they have more than one year’s service), seasonal/casual employees and agency.
  • Covid-19, and Long Covid have been added as sickness reasons. Please provide data for these two new reasons if you have data recorded. If you have no data please leave these reasons blank.
  • The question on how many employees are male and how many female now uses the word sex in place of the word gender. This is a change in wording, please provide data in the same way as before by male, female or not known.

Please ensure that data is provided before, or at the latest by the deadline of 9 July 2021. So that benchmarking data available for the exceptional 2020-21 pandemic period as soon as possible. In particular the sickness by reason data is needed urgently to help boroughs assess the impact of Covid and the different working arrangements.

Once the survey is complete the results will be available online.
