People Committee


In May 2019, the Ofcom Board agreed to replace the Remuneration Committee and the Nominations Committee with the People Committee.

The People Committee is a sub-committee of the Ofcom Board. All non-executive Ofcom Board members are members of the People Committee. The Committee is chaired by Ben Verwaayen.

The principal purpose of the Committee is to consider, oversee and periodically evaluate the appropriateness of Ofcom’s People & Workforce Strategy.

The Committee also sets the over-arching principles and parameters of remuneration policy across Ofcom and considers and approves individual terms and conditions of service, including the remuneration arrangements of key individuals. The Committee leads the process on appointments of Executive Board Members and the Senior Management Team (SMT) and approves the succession plans for the Ofcom Board, SMT and critical colleagues.

The Committee meets at least twice a year.
