Aligning SMART work to strategic HR practices

Attract. On-board. Develop. Retain. Easy Enough? As any HR professional will tell you, it isn’t.

This workshop will focus on key strategic HR activities as they relate to the newly developed SMART work framework. Developed by Australian Research Council Professor Sharon Parker, SMART work is a framework that can be used when designing meaningful and motivating work. Based on decades of research, the SMART work design framework identifies five key themes that result in positive outcomes across jobs and industries. The themes for SMART work are: Stimulating, Mastery, Agency, Relational, and Tolerable Demands.

Applying SMART and its underlying work design principles can positively impact on meaningful employee outcomes such as engagement, retention, proactivity, creativity and motivation. This workshop takes a practical approach, empowering you to utilise the framework and providing case studies to illustrate the business case for making the SMART framework an integral part of any HR strategy.
