Welcome to the Imperial College Essentials (Essentials) webpages.   Essentials have been developed with three objectives in mind, to:

  • Keep our People Safe
  • Keep our Information Safe
  • Contribute to a Positive Working Environment

Essentials provide the key information that all new staff need to know in the first six months of their employment with us and Essentials complement local induction.  

This website is a resource designed to assist managers and new staff to support their understanding and adherence to Essentials and we have designated HR staff who are Essentials Champions who will support the implementation of Essentials.

The components of Essentials are shown below.
