By placing the right people in the right positions, MoDOT can better serve its customers and help fulfill its responsibilities to taxpayers.
The number of minority employees decreased by 10.1%, from 524 employees in the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 to 471 in the fourth quarter of FY 2021.
The number of women employees decreased 1.2%, from 878 employees in the fourth quarter of FY 2020 to 868 in the fourth quarter of FY 2021.
Total full-time employment between the fourth quarter of FY 2020 and the fourth quarter of FY 2021 decreased from 5,046 to 4,930 employees.
New retention efforts have been put into place including new employee resource groups and virtual diversity webinars. These good-faith efforts aid in increasing an applicant pool of qualified minorities and women from internal candidates which may ultimately help narrow the gap between actual employment and target employment of minorities and women.
The target for this measure is the Missouri availability, determined by the 2010 census, for both demographics tracked. While MoDOT has surpassed the target for women employed, we are trending down incrementally for minorities as of the fourth quarter for FY 2021.
Purpose of the Measure:
This measure tracks minority and women employment in MoDOT’s workforce and compares it with availability data from the Missouri 2010 Census report.
Measurement and Data Collection:
The SAM II database is used to collect data. The Missouri 2010 Census data is used as the benchmark for this measurement. The availability number is derived from two different sets of data; the 2010 census and the current pool of MoDOT employees who are trainable, transferable or promotable. The two statistics are factored together and weighted based on the hiring practices from the previous year. The weighted number allows for a more accurate reflection of the hiring process. This number ultimately conveys the number of minorities and women who currently possess the skills necessary to work for the department.
The target for this measure is based on Missouri’s availability and is set each October.
