Institutional Success - Employee Diversity
Diverse New Hires measures the percentage of diverse new hires each year. The district’s diversity has gradually increased in recent years, reaching a high of 35.2% in 2019. The percentage of diverse new hires at Harper had also been increasing until FY2019 when it dropped to 25.9%. This percentage represents 21 diverse new hires of the 81 overall new hires.
Improvement = 35.2%+ – This target varies annually based on district diversity.
Underrepresented Employee Separations measures the percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College through voluntary resignation. The FY2019 voluntary separation rate of underrepresented employees had a sharp decrease from 11.0% in FY2018 to 5.9% in FY2019. This percentage is just below the overall employee separation rate of 6.0%.
There is a relatively small number of employees voluntarily resigning from the College each year. For example, 48 employees voluntarily resigned in FY2019, 11 of whom were diverse employees. These small annual numbers lead to increased variability in results from year to year. While the underrepresented employee separation rate had been higher than the overall employee separation rate for several years, in FY2019 it dropped below the overall rate.
Stretch = The percentage of underrepresented employees who separate from the College should be less than each year's overall employee separation rate
