People Plan

People Plan Programme

The People Plan programme has now completed all of the projects it was working on during 2018/19 and achieved some great results, including:

  • the introduction of UoRLearn, the University's new staff learning and development platform
  • the new 3Rs Leadership Framework
  • an exciting range of Wellbeing initiatives

Most importantly, we have seen the involvement of so many of our University colleagues in these projects.

Sam Foley, Chair of the People Plan Board*, has confirmed that the People Plan will continue and that she is working with the Vice Chancellor to determine how the People Plan can best contribute towards the new strategic themes and what projects they can focus on during the next academic session.

We will share more information here as soon as it becomes available.
