Usage Guidance

  • This metric is intended to capture pre-tax wages/salaries paid to the organization's management employees who belong to minority or previously excluded groups and should not include benefits nor include payroll expenses. These wages should exclude Temporary Employee Wages (OI4202).
  • Organizations can refer to the glossary for additional guidance on defining management. The composition of management can vary based on an organization's stage and type. Generally, managers are responsible for setting objectives (setting goals for the group and deciding what work needs to be done to meet those goals), for organizing (dividing work into manageable activities and selecting the right people to accomplish the tasks), for motivating and communicating (creating a team from the individuals through decisions on pay, promotion, and communications with the team), for measuring (establishing targets, interpreting and analyzing performance), and for developing people.
  • 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.
