Employee data

We collect, analyse and report on data about our workforce. This helps us to understand our workforce better and how our staff are adding value to the council.  This data helps us to make informed decisions and assess the impact of policies and initiatives.

All data excludes Schools staff.

Integra is a South Gloucestershire Council division who trade with schools, local public sector organisations and local businesses, and provide services to the Council. Integra was established as a single ‘Trade Services’ team in 2011 when the catering, cleaning and professional support services were brought together within the Council and the large majority of schools funding was devolved to schools.  With input from South Gloucestershire schools, Traded Services rebranded as Integra, the trading arm of South Gloucestershire Council, in 2015.

FTE is calculated based on the number of contracted hours worked by an employee where 37 hours = 1 FTE. Therefore 1 FTE may equate to 1 employee being contracted to work full time (37 hours a week) or made up of a number of employees who are contracted to work less than 37 hours per week. The following table shows the number of FTE by department. Please note an employee’s FTE is counted in each role they work in.
