The Employee Engagement team within HR are committed to building a supportive, inclusive and highly motivated staff community across all disciplines, functions and activities at the College.
As part of this commitment, we will strive to improve the workplace experience by continually listening and responding to the views of our staff.
We have a number of different initiatives in place in order to recognise, support and celebrate the achievements and hard work of all staff:
Staff Recognition Awards & Events
These awards are for all staff, at all levels, across research, teaching and professional services roles who have shown outstanding commitment and demonstrated a valuable contribution to the College’s mission. We also organise a Long Service Reception and Dinner on an annual basis to recognise those members of staff who completed over 20 years’ service at the College.
The Staff Survey takes place every two years to obtain feedback on key aspects of your experience at the College such as your role, your development, communications, your line manager and your perceptions. In addition to the surveys, the HR Engagement team also run annual roadshows at each of the campuses and seek updates from each Faculty's action plans.

Babies and bumps network
New parents and parents-to-be are invited to meet other Imperial colleagues in a similar situation for a monthly, informal networking and mutual support over tea/coffee. A HR representative will be there to answer any family leave related queries and advise about the current family support initiatives.
Guidance and support for all staff who identify as carers or have an interest in balancing work with caring responsibilities. We hope this network will help staff with finding an ideal balance between work and home life in addition to access to useful resources and facilitating conversations with other colleagues.
Parents and Carers Newsletters
The Employee Engagement team will be sending out newsletters to parents and carers within the College detailing the current resources and support schemes within the College. You can view the newsletters here or alternatively contact the Parents Network or Carers Network to be added to the mailing list.
Support Services Social Committee
The Support Services Social Committee provides networking opportunities for staff working in support services roles at the College. It aims to bring together staff with shared interests through events and activities such as the annual Summer Party, new starters networking event, theatre trips, wine tasting and pub quizzes.
