Our People strategy

Supporting BAS Science and Operations deliver excellence

Our aim is to make the British Antarctic Survey (BAS) an Employer of Choice – a place where people are proud and excited to work, where teams and individuals are trusted with responsibilities and accountable for what they do, and where the development and wellbeing of our people is recognised as a priority.

The People Strategy has been developed to support the mission and values of the British Antarctic Survey and is aligned to its strategic business objectives.

The priorities outlined in the strategy, and supported by a 3-year plan, will help drive the required changes in culture, leadership, talent management, performance, personal development and ways of working that will be needed to ensure BAS achieves its strategic goals and our staff and students receive an exceptional experience.

In this journey BAS HR will work closely with NERC and UKRI to ensure that our people strategic plans are aligned, experiences are shared and lessons are learnt.

The strategy rotates around three strategic themes:

·     Foster a values-based culture which empowers people, encourage openness and inclusion and cares for their wellbeing

·     Develop a culture of reward and recognition which support personal and professional development

·     Create responsive HR services well placed to support an agile organisation and meet business and people ever changing needs
