Charles Sturt has a strong commitment to developing a constructive workplace culture which is based on striving achievement and excellence, supporting our employees to develop and treat each other with respect and honesty.
Our values define who we are and they are reflected in our behaviours. They guide our actions and influence the way we work with each other, and they are:
We strive for excellence in everything we do by setting challenging but realistic goals that support community needs, and pursue them with enthusiasm. Each and every employee has a part to play in achieving this ambition and is accountable for their contribution.
We look for creative solutions to problems, find new ways of doing things, share new ideas, identify continuous improvement opportunities and take calculated risks. When things go wrong, we use this as an opportunity to learn from our experience
We encourage and support each other’s efforts to improve and recognise each other’s achievements. We are honest to ourselves, each other and our community, we communicate openly and show each other respect.
Work should be satisfying and fulfilling and fun. We promote a workplace that is friendly and supportive, and one where we share and celebrate our successes.
Our culture is a key part of delivering outcomes for our community, providing excellent customer service and having a meaningful, challenging and rewarding career at Charles Sturt. We measure our culture via our Living Blue program. This makes our City a fabulous place to work and a place where your commitment and contribution will be valued.
