Human Capital - Best Practice

Best Practice

A message to our students and staff

Human capital is our most important resource in achieving sustainability at CSU and we have developed systems to engage and develop students and staff.

The Human Capital framework addresses three critical areas:

  1. Recruitment
    Our recruitment processes position sustainability at the heart of joining CSU and encourage students and staff to play their part in the University’s diverse, sustainable community.
  2. Recognition
    We all share ownership in CSU’s commitment to sustainability. Staff and students who foster positive behaviour change will be recognised and rewarded, through CSU’s achievements, performance reviews and sustainability awards.
  3. Professional development
    Staff (in particular middle and senior management) have opportunities for professional development to pursue their interest in sustainability and further inspire a rewarding culture change at CSU.

Progress toward best practice

This framework was benchmarked with the Staff Engagement framework on 23 May, 2016 and this graph shows our progress toward best practice across the eight activity areas.

The below graph illustrates our progress towards best practice across the eight (8) activity areas.  The orange bars reaching four (4) highlight best practice and the lower bars in blue indicate CSU’s current baseline ratings.
