Our people Strategy

"Inspiring Excellence – an employer of choice for exceptional people”

Strategic aim

Our people, both staff and students, are at the heart of everything we do and the intention of our first People Strategy is that it will underpin the continued realisation of the University vision, and will be a key contributor to our continued growth and ambition.  

This People Strategy aims to lead the University in creating a culture that inspires excellence through delivering innovative policies, support and initiatives that underpin the University’s success, and benefits the communities in which we work.

Key objectives

  • Create a diverse and inclusive University community that enables creativity, imagination and innovation and is truly representative of our student population with the aspiration to be representative of London.
  • Become an employer of choice where the best and the brightest want to be and for attracting diverse talent, particularly in under-represented parts of the University.
  • Build confidence and capability in our leaders and managers to deliver innovative and creative solutions that enable the ambitions of our University.
  • Create a working environment in which staff are inspired to give their best every day and are motivated to be part of the University’s success.
  • Create the capability needed for future success by motivating and engaging our people to take responsibility for their own performance and development and to adapt to continuous change.
  • Reward and recognise excellent contribution which reflects our values and contributes to achieving our ambition.
  • Place wellbeing at the heart of the employee life-cycle experience and encourage and inspire our people to look after their health and wellbeing, and that of others. All achieved by a collaborative University wide commitment which is underpinned by an innovative and future-focused Human Resources team.
