Purpose and aim of unit

This unit introduces the learner to how organisations can drive sustained organisation performance by creating a high-performance work organisation (HPWO) and involving line managers in the performance management process. The unit assesses the different conceptual frameworks of high-performance working (HPW) and examines its impact on organisational performance, competitive advantage, employee engagement and employee well-being. It provides the learner with the business case for, and the barriers to, HPW as well as the role of people management in improving organisational performance. Furthermore, the unit examines the contribution of the performance management process and shows how the involvement and commitment of line managers, and the use of effective and inclusive collaborative working and communication techniques, can support the building of a high-performance culture that promotes diversity, trust, enthusiasm and commitment and that recognises critical skills, capabilities, experience and performance.

This unit is suitable for persons who:
• seek to develop a career in human resources (HR) management and development
