HPWPs are internal systems and structures that are associated with successful companies 1. Employees important for competitive advantage 2. Value of employees increased through specific practices.  3. Maximum benefit when org practices are bundled 2. No consensus, but HPWPs include: 1. Employee involvement and work autonomy (and their combination as self- directed teams).  2. Employee competence (training, selection, etc.). 3. Performance-based rewards Describe the characteristics of high-performance workplaces and organizations. A high performance workplace is a combination of technology, process, management and leadership that employees can  create more value. This type of performance allows employees to interact more productivly with the necessary tools to get  the job done.  We can look at the High Performance Worplace philosophy as a philosophy based on positive assumptions, respect,  identification and elimination of negatives, training/development, two way commuication, employee interaction and  involvement, competitve wage and benefits. In a high performance work organization (HPWO), employee basic skills are  just one of many components (Jurmo et al. 1994). HPWOs feature flatter organizational structures, work done by teams of  highly skilled workers, and a focus on quality, customer service, and continuous improvement (Kerka 1995). In addition to  producing high-quality products and services, an HPWO also "provides a high quality of  work life  for all employees" (Jurmo  et al. 1994, p. 4). High Performance Organizations can be small companies to large corporations. Every business deserves the right and the  ability to grow in an effective business, and when the key management skills and strategies the company can grow and  improve performance and productivity. Once this is done, the company will be able to increase their  recruiting  methods and  hire more employees, and increase their reputation allowing the company to succeed even more. Discuss how high-performance workplaces and organizations differ from traditional organizations regarding operational effectiveness, workplace stress, and organizational dynamics. Modern high performance workplaces differ grandly from traditional organization in terms of operational effectiveness,  workplace stress, and organizational dynamics. High performance workplaces must master the task of adapting to an  ever-changing business industry that traditional, stuck’ in’ their' ways’, organizations are lacking. High performance  organizations are general deeply entrenched within the technological/electronic age and the effects resulting.
