HR Policy Toolkit: A manager's guide to implementing HR policies and procedures
At USQ we are committed to fulfilling lives. We take a personal interest in the success of our students, employees, members, partners, external clients and stakeholders.
The core values at USQ are:
- Respect for the individual
- Success for students
- Social responsibility
- Free intellectual inquiry
- Excellence, innovation and creativity
As a manager or supervisor at USQ you have a vital role in encouraging and supporting employees so that they can readily demonstrate behaviour consistent with these core values.
By engaging skilled managers and equipping them to perform their roles, we increase our ability to attract and retain excellent employees who exemplify USQ’s values. We are also better able to provide these employees with the opportunity to succeed personally, professionally and organisationally.
Great workplaces come in all shapes and sizes, however they share four characteristics:
- They are values-based organisations with a very clear vision of the future
- They have created a sense of community, where people feel a strong sense of belonging and optimism in the future
- They have development strategies to help realise their full potential
- They have created a performance culture where high standards of performance are set, and demanded
This toolkit aims to provide you with important information that will assist you in performing your role. The toolkit is a summarised version of HR policies and procedures, with additional practical applications to assist in the day to day management of human resources related matters.
For further information on each of the topics covered in the toolkit, the full policies and procedures can be found in the HR Policies and Procedures.
If you have any suggestions or feedback on the toolkit please contact a member of the HR Policy and Projects team.
It should be noted that the toolkit is designed as a guide to policy application only, and should not replace the full HR Policies and Procedures in the USQ Policy Library as a formal decision making tool.
