University strategic goal six (6) – to be an institution of choice led to the development of People Strategy. This goal seeks to establish the University as an institution of choice that attracts and retains academic and support staff of the highest calibre by creating an intellectual environment that fosters and stimulates academic life, and a climate of organisational citizenship in which all staff recognise and understand their role in ensuring the success of the University. To this end the six People Strategic Objectives were developed:

  • Create and Build Sustainable Performance Improvement Culture: broaden participation of all stakeholders in the development and deployment of People Strategy - ownership is obtained from being active participants in the creation. 

  • Ensure Leadership Excellence Beyond Compliance: drives leadership and management excellence in people business; as well as ensure good governance and compliance through broader transformation and management.

  • Improve Total Reward Framework to Attract, Encourage and Recognize key Talent: ensure alignment of Employment value proposition attributes to reward philosophy.

  • Position Leadership and University Performance for Excellence: to attract, and nurture a strong mix of high-caliber, motivated, research-responsive Talent Pool for the University; in order to maximize performance and efficiencies.

  • Technological Enhancement for People Processes: create a platform and migration plan for Employee and Manager Self Services through systemic automation of Management Information
