An effective people strategy puts people at the centre of the organisation’s strategic vision, and can offer a competitive advantage in attracting talented staff and supporting them to perform at their best. Beyond ensuring that the organisation has the right staff in place to perform the work, a people strategy can also enhance your employee’s experience of work, ensuring that they are engaged with their role and feel valued by the organisation, which has a known impact on job satisfaction and retention.
In our next piece we will explore the key steps to developing a people strategy for a school or multi-academy trust.
