The Human Resources (HR) Department supports and facilitates the people framework of the University in achieving its goals as put forward in the Institutional Operating Plan (IOP). A key goal of the department is to attract, retain and develop talent, which will enable the University to execute its core mandate.
We are committed to providing a positive HR service experience for applicants, employees and retirees, and offering effective strategic and operational HR services that will enable our clients to deliver their strategic goals. We follow an influencing and partnering approach in our provision of HR services to meet the needs of the workplace, and collaborate with Faculties and Departments to maintain a positive orientation towards talent management that underpins growth, change management, development, recruitment and retention of diverse and talented employees.
We strive to position ourselves as an employer of choice with an Employee Value Proposition that aims to create a supportive work environment and an institutional culture that embraces diversity, inclusivity and excellence and that is resilient amidst contextual challenges in support of the institutional vision and strategic goals.
By implementing, a people-centred agenda to shape the future of work at UWC that finds and develops the next-generation talent, helps people manage their careers, build personal energy and passion, encourages networks and relationships, and use technological capabilities to create strategic traction within the University.
Our goal is to be recognised as a team of trusted HR professionals providing relevant best practise HR solutions (policies, systems, processes and interventions) through effective partnerships with our clients in pursuit of delivering their people plans.
The ethos of the university is that of an engaged employer and the Human Resources Department facilitates various programmes and encourages community of practices to engage on topics of interest.
