Proposed Work Programme for the Tripartite Future of Work Forum

“High Performance High Engagement is a particular approach to resolving workplace issues. It is based on the concept that employers and employees are best placed to find solutions to work-related challenges and should therefore work together in decision-making.

The Government is considering how it can best support employers and unions to implement High Performance, High Engagement systems in their workplaces.”
