Introduction : Human Resources Development (HRD)
Message from The Director : 
Human Resources Development 

Welcome to Human Resources Development (HRD). The role of Human Resources Development is to enable the achievement of the University of KwaZulu-Natal strategy through targeted and effectives programmes aimed at the development and performance of individual employees and the institution as whole. HRD is a centre of excellence of HR Strategic and Organisational Development programmes aimed at positioning the University Of KwaZulu-Natal as an Institution of Choice for employees. We constantly strive for excellence in all programmes and systems in the drive to achieve the HR People Strategy. HRD also plays an advisory and consultancy role to senior management i.e. Executive members, Vice Chancellor, Deans & Directors in terms of people and organisational development processes. 

The Human Resources Development Department drives programmes that are aimed at the Attraction, Retention & Engagement and Development of talent (all employees). Our programmes are delivered in three modes: 1) Through College/ Divisional HR; 2) Directly through HRD; 3) Collaboration with HR Rewards Services.

The programmes driven by and through HRD are shown in the diagram below;

HRD creates collaborations with the University Teaching & Learning office (UTLO); the Research office (RO), Extended Learning and Senior Academics in the design and delivery of programmes e.g. the UEIP, Research Induction and Academic Promotions. HRD will always endeavour to ensure extensive consultation with all stakeholders in the design and implementation of any new or change in process or programme as well promote the University’s REACH values in all encounters.


Yours Sincerely;

Ms Busisiwe Ramabodu
