4B12 Evaluation of EEO-1 Reports

EEO-1 reports are valuable sources of information on changes in the workforce. Therefore, COs must review the total corporate-wide employment shown in the latest consolidated (Type 2) EEO-1 report. A CO should compare this with the corporate-wide employment in the preceding consolidated report to determine whether total employment is stable, growing or declining. This review also helps determine which EEO-1 categories have changed the most.

COs should use the corporate headquarters EEO-1 reports, i.e., the Type 3 reports, to conduct EEO trend analyses on the direction of headquarters employment generally, and by EEO-1 category, including changes in groups determined to be unfavored through other analyses.

Comparisons of the participation of nonfavored groups in the two Officials and Managers (O&M) categories and the Professional category on the Type 3 report, with their representation in the same categories on the Type 2 report, should also be conducted by COs.

COs should review the latest individual establishment reports to identify major facility locations. A major facility is one that contains 150 or more employees, or in the case of smaller corporations where no individual facility reaches the 150 employees mark, a facility where the number of employees is at least 33% higher than the average of all facilities. COs will compare the participation of nonfavored group members in the two O&M categories and the Professional category on the headquarters’ Type 3 report, with their representation in the same categories on the individual Type 4 reports, for the selected establishments. The COs will also compare individual establishments and note any significant differences in the participation of members of nonfavored groups in specific categories between establishments, as well as within a given establishment from one year to the next.

COs should discuss any areas of potential concern or interest resulting from these analyses in the appropriate section of the SCER.
