Maximising potential: High Performance Workplaces

    High Performance Workplaces get the most from every part of a business and in particular, from its people, by creating a valued, diverse and involved staff team. According to Business Link it is not about size or sector - any business can adopt the key charactersistics of a high performance workplace as a way of motivating staff and in turn raise productivity.
    High perfomance workplaces encourage best practice methods of working in human resources, work organsation and employee relations. This results in better skills, more committed and engaged employees and a diverse and equal working environment. As a result, such workplaces achieve higher levels of performance, productivity and customer satisfaction. Whilst there is no one size fits all for achieveing high performance, successful workplaces tend to have five elements in common:
    a) a focus on HR/People issues including fair and open recruitment, effective management training and well established disciplinary and grievance procedures
    b) a focus on employee involvement encouraging self-managed team-working, devolved responsibilities, trust, adavanced communication and continuous employee involvement in management decisions
    c) a commitment to equality of opportunity and diverse workforce drawn from all backgrounds, cultures and skills levels
    d) a variety of working patterns including flexible working, work-life balance and family recognised policies with work organisation to match
    e) an investment in staff training and development on a continuous basis, talent management principles in place and encouragement for creative and innovative ideas flowing froma highly skilled, motivated, committed and adaptable work ethic. Above all, there is no place for a blame culture.

    It probably goes without saying that employers that provide opportunities for their employees to grow and develop are more likely to see their business levels grow and develop too.
