Martin Tiplady OBE

Martin Tiplady was the Director of HR at the Metropolitan Police Service for over nine years. 

He served as a board member and reported directly to the Commissioner. Martin was responsible for HR, Leadership and Training (with a budget of £110m), as well as Logistics, Catering and other functions (with a further budget of just under £100m).

During his service Martin introduced a major new HR infrastructure and system saving over £15m per annum and requiring 350 fewer HR employees. He also transformed the training structure and put in place a model that, by 2012/13, will save over £30m each year.

Martin introduced new HR policies and systems that increased the police workforce by over 13,000. He was actively at the centre of new pay structure design for the entire UK police service and was very involved in plans to reform and modernise policing nationally.

Martin was awarded an OBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours 2010 for services to policing. 

We are delighted that Martin joins the HR Lounge Associates providing specialist advice in HR infrastructure, policies and logistics.
