The concept of a high performing organization is a powerful way of meeting workforce and workplace renewal challenges. Innovation, operational excellence, and exceptional service and product quality depend, more than anything, on a skilled and committed workforce. High-performing organizations treat employees as their core asset, investing in human resource management practices that leverage knowledge and skills in healthy ways. The culture, values, work relationships and leadership of high-performing organizations support learning, participation, work-life balance and wellness, linking these practices to overall business results. Participants will gain a clear understanding of the human resource practices and work systems that contribute to high performance, the documented benefits for employers and employees, and the actions needed to create this kind of organization.
