​​Executive Summary (refer figure: 1).

Strategic HR management requires the implementation of people strategies, policies and plans aligned to the university’s IOP. This supports the university to achieve its objectives, by building capability and capacity in partnership with colleagues.HR follows an influencing and partnering approach in its provision of HR services to meet the needs of the workplace.

HR strives to apply technology to make information accessible and accurate; to provide knowledge and intelligence for decision making. People metrics and HR measurements form part of improvement thinking.

HR risk management addresses uncertainties and opportunities that may have a positive or negative effect on the realisation of the IOP; whilst reinforcing ethical practices.​
