REPORT ON A SURVEY ON TIME COMMITMENT, REMUNERATION AND OTHER ASPECTS OF THE ROLE OF PUBLIC APPOINTEES 2020

| Diversity delivers | Public Appointments

During the second half of 2020, the Ethical Standards Commissioner (ESC) conducted research into the roles of chairs and board members of regulated public bodies.  The research sought to understand:

  • the impact of certain aspects of these roles, such as time commitment, remuneration and expenses, and whether these can create barriers to taking up board positions for people from currently under-reflected groups
  • if there are other barriers that are having an impact on the diversity of boards including in relation to sector worked in, disability and socio-economic background
  • the extent to which the Commissioner’s statutory functions are understood.

This report details the findings of the survey.
