NT Lakis is pleased to provide an updated set of benchmarking tables that incorporate data from the 2017 EEO-1 filing cycle, the most recent EEO-1 data made available by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). The benchmarking tables only include the traditional “Component 1” headcount data, and does not include the 2017 “Component 2” pay and hours-worked data that EEO-1 filers are currently required to submit to the EEOC by September 30, 2019.

The annual EEO-1 data are relied upon heavily by both the EEOC and the Labor Department’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) in their administration and enforcement of federal EEO/AA compliance requirements. As a result, many companies use the same data for equal employment opportunity, affirmative action, and diversity benchmarking and self-auditing purposes.

NT Lakis prepared the updated tables using the data from an advance file released recently by the EEOC that contains the first available tabulations of 2017 EEO-1 benchmark data by race/ethnicity and gender, and represent the most current private-sector workforce diversity benchmark statistics broken down by industry and geography.
