Staff Recruitment, Review and Promotions Policy


This policy outlines how Global Leadership Institute (GLI) reviews performance, builds capacity and rewards excellence of staff through a fair, respectful, inclusive and equitable process.


Performance management consists of the following three core elements:

  • Individual plans;

  • Ongoing feedback and development;

  • Performance and development reviews

GLI adheres to the following principles to:

  • Provide staff with appropriate support, time and encouragement to undertake professional development and inductions;

  • Provide opportunities for staff to develop knowledge, skills and capabilities that will ensure the achievement of strategic goals, contribute to the achievement of individual aspirations and achieve the required legislative and professional requirements;

  • Ensure delegated supervisors identify development needs primarily through the annual cycle of performance management planning, development and review;

  • Expect staff will be proactive and take responsibility for their own professional development and strive to achieve their full potential;

  • Ensure staff are formally and informally rewarded in a fair and consistent manner for outstanding contributions and performance that support its goals and objectives;

  • Recognise and reward consistent outstanding achievement and performance through promotion processes.


  • The HR Manager is responsible to ensure that the policy is implemented across all departments of the Institute

  • Academic Board is responsible to ensure that the promotion of academic staff follows due processes set out by GLI;

  • The Academic Dean, Registrar, Program Directors and delegated supervisors are responsible for the performance review for their respective staff;
