Nyckeltalsinstitutet has developed financial HR indicators which show the organisation’s situation in terms of employees with foreign backgrounds. Diversity includes many different factors which is why we have decided to name our index “Foreign background indicator” to clarify the elements we can measure using employee financial data and indicators.
Foreign background indicators show what the personnel structure and equal treatment situation looks like in your company/organisation.
We use the standard definition of “foreign background” as used by SCB (Statistics Sweden): Overseas origin = born in another country or both parents born in another country. If the parents were born in different area categories (eg. Scandinavia and outside Europe) the employee’s location of birth determines the category.
If desired, we can also use more categories than those above, for example Asia, Africa, South/North America, as long as there are sufficient numbers of employees per category to carry out a survey.
