Staff engagement - Best Practice

Message to our staff

Our journey towards sustainability is one necessitating change in both attitudes and behaviours; rhetoric means little without the engagement of people and the communities we create. Supporting staff in our engagement with issues of sustainability and processes of change is challenging but critical to translate aspirations into action.

There is unquestionably expertise within the Charles Sturt University staff base that remains untapped until individuals are actively consulted. Similarly, staff are often very engaged in sustainability in their personal lives but fail to engage with agendas in similar ways during their working lives. Charles Sturt University is tapping into this energy and expertise by facilitating conversations with them through the LiFE process.
