Strategic priority 5

Build an authoritative and responsive organisation


  • The tasks set out across the four strategic priorities above require the Commission to fulfil a complex remit, while coping with a range of economic and political challenges.
  • We will continue to build our authoritative measurement framework and evidence base. That will require the Commission to invest in people while developing effective approaches to project-based working. The Commission is continuing to build a lean and efficient corporate centre, while strengthening its financial management capability.
  • An organisation that is strategically focused and professionally capable will also have the confidence to work with, and where necessary, lead those stakeholders that are committed to the human rights and equalities agenda in creating lasting social change. The Commission will maintain a reactive capability given the likelihood of unexpected events, crises and societal ‘shocks’.
