‘Building Success Together’ – The Launch of the New Birkbeck People Strategy pdf format

We have pleasure in presenting the new Birkbeck People Strategy, “Building Success Together”. This   strategy sets out our vision for supporting continued excellence and success on the eve of our 200th anniversary.

As well as supporting the management of all staff in the College, we have focused our future priorities in support of the College strategies for research excellence, teaching and learning excellence,  student recruitment and satisfaction, and staff and student equalities.  In developing the people strategy we reviewed College and School priorities, listened to staff focus groups and digested Staff Survey results. This input was shaped into five building blocks:  Building College Success; Building our Future Workforce; Building a Great Place to Work; Building Workforce Diversity; and Building Success through Recognition.

Year One Priorities 2017-18 pdf format

In addition to developing a new people strategy for 2017-23, we have identified the immediate priority areas that we will focus on in the coming academic year. These activities have been constructed as part of our continuing commitment to listen to our stakeholders and have been identified through reviewing School and Professional Service Department Annual Plans.

Next Steps

‘Building Success Together’ will be promoted across the College during autumn 2017. Our HR Business Partner and HR Strategy and Policy teams will actively engage with Schools and Professional Service Directorates in taking forward the priority actions through project teams with support and representation from stakeholders.  We will also be running a mini ‘pulse’ Staff Survey in autumn 2017 to ensure we continue to listen to our staff. After all, continuing excellence in research and teaching and learning can only achieved by ensuring we continue to recruit, retain, develop and support excellent staff. We will do this by ‘Building Success Together’.
