Beyond HR – new booklet launched

In August, the PSA hosted David Coats, an English expert in employment and high-engagement, for ten packed days of meetings, seminars and presentations in Auckland and Wellington.

Beyond Human Resources: Towards the High-Engagement WorkplaceWhile here, David, the former head of economic and social affairs for the UK’s Trade Union Congress, spoke to a number of audiences about the future of work, how to create highly engaged workplaces, and the role of unions.

Accompanying his tour, we’re pleased to launch Beyond Human Resources: Towards the High-Engagement Workplace, a short booklet about the development of human resources and the changes that the HR sector needs to make in order to better foster engagement from people in our workplaces.

David’s support of high-engagement models aligns well with the PSA’s strategic agenda of Transforming Our Workplaces. We are continuing to encourage employers to adopt high-engagement strategies which involve managers working alongside PSA members to improve our working lives, and we have a number of successful pilots and programmes underway.
