Equality Diversity and Inclusion strategy

IEHC is committed towards fostering a positive culture where all staff, students and visitors can flourish without the fear of being stigmatised or feeling they need to conceal elements of their identity.

Flexible working, parents and families

IEHC acknowledges that its staff, students and visitors are most productive when they have achieved a work-life balance that enables them to meet their responsibilities outside work. 

UCL aims to recruit and retain staff of the highest calibre. Remuneration and other benefits, regular appraisal and development opportunities, good job-design and effective management practices are all important factors in enabling departments to achieve this objective. Research suggests, however, that increasingly the opportunity to achieve a work-life balance can be as important a factor as pay and benefits in attracting and retaining staff and therefore this policy has the aim of benefiting both staff and UCL as an employer.
