TIDE is enei’s self-assessment evaluation and benchmarking tool. It measures an organisation’s approach and progress on diversity and inclusion (D&I) in the following areas:

  • Your workforce
  • Strategy and plan
  • Leadership and accountability
  • Recruitment and attraction
  • Training and development
  • Other employment practices
  • Communication and engagement
  • Procurement

TIDE supports flexible and inclusive management of D&I, moving away from strand specific language and approach, allowing organisations to focus on the areas that will make the most difference. It evaluates D&I activities and outcomes with geographic and legislative differences.

TIDE is accessible, fast, and easy to complete, requiring minimal time consuming evidence gathering.


  • TIDE is FREE for enei members.
  • TIDEmark, the annual benchmark, enables you to compare yourself to other organisations.
  • Inclusive language and flexible framework make TIDE relevant across the globe.
  • Instant results demonstrate actions required to see improvement.

What do I get?

A personalised report

TIDE generates a personalised report that clearly shows how your score was built up and how higher scores can be achieved including: 

  • Your overall score, showing where your organisation sits on enei’s Diversity and Inclusion Roadmap. 
  • Your score and Diversity and Inclusion Roadmap position for each of the eight individual sections. 
  • The questions, answers, and your percentage score for each question so you can identify strengths and areas for improvement. 

Unlike some other evaluation and benchmark surveys, the TIDE report allows you to see clearly how your score was built up and how higher scores can be achieved. 

The TIDEmark

All TIDE entries will be benchmarked against all other entries each year. This will be known as the TIDEmark. When a minimum level of entries in a particular sector or country is achieved, we will also benchmark and share these results. 

The best entries will be awarded bronze, silver, and gold TIDE awards. Award holders will be able to demonstrate their achievement by using electronic TIDE award badges and logos on websites and literature. 

Organisations achieving the best results will also be recognised each year at the annual enei awards and may be invited to share their practices and achievements at future enei events. You can register for TIDE here.

How does TIDE Work? 

The process 

TIDE is a self-assessment evaluation that uses Probench, our secure and easy to use online platform. 

The main contact for each member automatically receives access to TIDE when becoming an enei member.


TIDE is self-assessment, and participating organisations must ensure they answer questions accurately so the results represent the organisation fairly. 

Responses are scored by applying a set of rules embedded within the TIDE system. Not every question or section is weighted equally. 

Each section allows the organisation to upload evidence to support responses. This information will not be used to influence the score but will be used by the enei team to review a random selection of entries ensuring standards are met. 


TIDE is a continuous evaluation and is available all year round. Whenever you choose to complete it, you will receive the report with your results immediately after submission. However, the TIDEmark is taken once a year. 

The submission deadline for entering the 2022 TIDE benchmarking has now passed, but you can still fill out TIDE at any time.

Please see your account manager or e-mail for more information. You can also see enei’s Quick Guide: TIDE (Talent Inclusion and Diversity Evaluation) FAQs for answers to common questions about TIDE.

enei offers you the opportunity to have your evaluation analysed by a member of the diversity and inclusion team who can support you to identify and prioritise actions. If this is of interest, contact or your account manager for further information and costs.
