- Good performance
The Board appreciates that our core purpose, risks and opportunities, strategy, business model, performance and sustainable development are inseparable elements of the value creation process. As such, the Board reviews and upholds our strategic direction. It approves strategy for the organisation and delegates its implementation to the Executive Centre and through Exco, to the National Projects and Regions. To ensure systematic, methodical, and consistent attention to all its responsibilities, the Board has adopted an annual workplan that provides a yardstick for measurement of its performance.
The purpose of the NRHRC is to assist the Board in its governance of the people practices of the SHR to ensure:
- The Board, the Executive Centre and other management and governance structures have the necessary skills and experience to fulfil their responsibilities.
- We have appropriate form and level of remuneration to attract and retain the required human resources.
- The Board, while non-remunerated, has appropriate expense recovery mechanisms for Board members.
- Our people management practices promote an ethical culture of engaged, high-performance staff and support the transformation objectives of the organisation
Through this mechanism, we strive to ensure suitably qualified and motivated people are employed to achieve our performance objectives.
The Board recognises information and technology is a key enabler in setting and achieving its strategic objectives. Therefore, it assumes ultimate responsibility for the governance of technology and information, with elements delegated to the IT committee.
