HIGH PERFORMANCE ORGANISATIONs
Research excellence. Competitive edge. Organisational impact.
People are critical to the success of organisations. It is people who drive innovation, profit, growth, social responsibility and customer satisfaction. The Centre for Workplace Excellence at the UniSA Business School conducts cutting-edge research to identify innovative and effective strategies for managing and supporting people in the workplace. Our researchers work closely with business, government, and professional management associations to determine effective and practical approaches to contemporary people management issues.
Organisational success is not achieved through hiring a great workforce alone, but through the practices and systems adopted to manage people. Organisations that effectively select, develop, motivate, deploy and manage people produce better results. Effectively managing people creates value by paying attention to employees’ wellbeing and achievements. Our multi-disciplinary research leads to the creation of better institutions, cultures and practices of work and life. It investigates how people and organisations can perform at their best in complex and increasingly competitive environments on a global scale.
