Foreword from our Executive Director of People

Our People Strategy has been developed to support the ‘Starting with our People’ strand of our strategic plan.

It responds to your feedback from staff surveys and other forms of employee engagement and is informed by our ambitious equality agenda.

Broader than a traditional Human Resources plan, it is a framework designed to drive organisational development by drawing together areas crucial to supporting and enabling people. These include approaches to EDI, communication, digital, estates and health and safety. Successful delivery of our strategy will enhance support for staff, students and all who interact with our University.

As members of London Met’s exceptional community, we all contribute to a culture and environment that allows our people to thrive. The five priorities we’ve set out will help us focus on areas that really matter in supporting this.

Our five priorities are:

  1. Health and wellbeing
  2. Inclusive culture, behaviour and values
  3. Attracting and growing talent
  4. Enabling talent and excellent performance
  5. Reward and recognition

Across all priorities we will build upon and improve communication mechanisms to keep staff informed, celebrate success and highlight opportunities, resources and developments.

I encourage you all to consider these priorities and your role in ensuring we fulfil our commitment to putting our people at the heart of what we do.
