Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture pre-tax wages/salaries paid to the organization's full-time employees who belong to minority/previously excluded groups and should not include benefits nor include payroll expenses. These wages should exclude Temporary Employee Wages (OI4202).
  • The categorization of minority/previously excluded groups vary by the locations and situations in which they live. Because there is no internationally agreed-upon definition as to which groups constitute minorities, in situations where well-established local policies exist (e.g., South Africa: Broad Based Black Economic Empowerment (BBBEE) definition of previously excluded, India: based on backward caste), organizations should refer to local guidelines to identify minority or previously excluded groups. Otherwise, organizations should provide additional detail as to their tailored methodology for defining these groups.
