Code of Ethics and Code of Conduct

Recruitment and selection

HR provides comprehensive recruitment and selection tools including process maps describing every stage from workforce planning to appointment.

Development and appraisal reviews

All staff of the University participate in professional development and performance appraisal reviews. An important strategy to achieve both staff and the University's goals is for staff to undertake regular reviews.

The University has an Interfaith Calendar which details the key dates for the major religious groups on campus.

The calendar will assist those staff required to have an understanding of the cultural and religious obligations of staff and students, especially when these involve an application for cultural or religious leave, deferred exams or alternative arrangements.

UWA provides a variety of workshops to support staff in all areas of professional development. Programs that provide more extended exploration of leadership or career management strategies are also offered on a competitive or invitational basis.
