What is sustainable organisation performance?
Sustainable organisation performance is the maintenance of an organisation’s high performance levels. These levels are measured by financial indicators, people management and environmental and societal contributions over the long term. Successful organisations sustain their performance in the face of both internal and external challenges over time, rather than simply achieving high performance levels over the short-term or during good economic periods.
The concept of sustainable organisation performance brings together two major streams of work associated with driving organisation performance conducted by the CIPD and others in recent years:
- high-performance working practices
- high-performing individuals.
Sustainable organisation performance takes both of these issues and identifies how individual performance and effort is directed within a facilitative environment to enable its translation into performance that is sustainable over the long term.
