Institutional Success - Employee Diversity 2016
Diverse New Hires measures the percentage of diverse new hires each year. Since 2010, the district’s diversity has gradually increased and reached a high of 33.8% in 2016. During the same time period, the percentage of diverse new hires at Harper has fluctuated. The 2016 rate of 26.15% did not meet the 2016 target.
2016 Target: Stretch = A percentage equivalent to, or exceeding, the percentage of ethnically and racially diverse district residents
This target aligns diversity of new College hires with community diversity.
Underrepresented Employee Separations measures the percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College through voluntary resignation. The 2016 voluntary separation rate of underrepresented employees increased to 16.78%, and was above the overall employee separation rate of 9.4%. The underrepresented employee separation rate did not achieve the 2016 target.
There is a relatively small number of employees voluntarily resigning from the College each year. For example, 65 employees voluntarily resigned in FY2016. These smaller annual numbers lead to increased variability in results from year to year. In three of the last five years, the underrepresented employee separation rate was lower than the overall employee separation rate.
2016 Target: Improvement = The percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College should be consistent with, or less than, each year's overall employee separation rate
This target aligns underrepresented employee separation with overall employee separation.
