About this Research Project

To remain competitive, organisations need to embed a capacity to continuously improve workplace performance. Yet many workplaces do not foster a culture of organisational learning and development, and fail to develop practices that support and sustain high performance outcomes. This research theme will extend our understanding of high performance work practices and how they are embedded for sustained innovation and productivity improvement.
