The HR Group’s overall objective is to support the College in delivering its academic mission by finding and developing diverse talent, creating an inclusive culture, and building a resilient workplace. The Imperial People Strategy 2022+ sets out our aims and how we will achieve them.
Our ambitions for the Imperial People Strategy 2022+ depend on strong foundations to succeed. The People Strategy is underpinned by getting the foundations of Human Resources right by ensuring that we have clear policies in place, that we have efficient systems with a high degree of operational optimisation, as well as access to high-quality data.
Finding and developing diverse talent
We will reach the best candidates and find new talent with a diverse range of backgrounds and skills to fill a wide range of roles, ensure that we remain an attractive employer and that achievement and contribution are recognised and rewarded, and provide high-quality data and insights to support planning at department, faculty, and College level, enhancing career progression and increasing equality in pay.
Supporting an inclusive culture and leadership
We will ensure all staff are supported so they can perform at their best, provide support for individual, group, and organisational learning at all stages of Imperial careers, embed common values and positive behaviours across the organisation, and strive to eliminate bullying and harassment.
Building a resilient workplace
We will create policies to ensure that Imperial is prepared to be more flexible as we work both in-person and online, while maintaining our culture and a sense of community cohesion, work to support the health and wellbeing of our staff to help them manage the pressures of life and work, and listen to and respond to staff and support all areas within the College to do the same. We will implement practical approaches for measuring and improving staff engagement.
