In the contemporary era, the challenges of sustainability have received increasing scholarly attention, as has the role of Human Resource Management in organisational sustainability. However, the extent to which Australian organisations are embracing sustainable human resource management practices, in particular practices pertaining to social and individual sustainability, has captured limited research interest. Thus, of six randomly selected Australian organisations from the finance and mining sectors during 2014 - 16 through documentary research and utilising Leximancer as text analytical software. The study found that, despite the growing number of Corporate Social Responsibility reporting quantitatively over the years, the report review analysis suggests relatively insignificant attention to social practices by most of the organisations and additionally the software analysis supports the report review conclusion by illustrating concept maps that affirms an inadequate portion of the reports consider social sustainability, with even weaker attention to individual sustainability
