Highlights: the Australian Not-for-Profit Workforce Study

The most basic and practical way to understand what drives high-impact organisations is to render the total work experience transparent in terms of its determinants, processes, and outcomes.

Performance is about impact, goes by many names and indicators, and can be measured

Engagement psychologically connects workers with their work, and thus drives impact

Learning from, at, and for work is one of the most central tenets for realising positive change

Capabilities and Gaps illustrate what NFP skills are key to impact, and what remains to be done

Wellbeing is a strategy and responsibility so workers are and stay in shape to make a difference

Leadership that cares for and empowers others to lead themselves, leads to phenomenal outcomes

Work Design is the hidden magic lever to realise individual and organisational success

People Systems that actually meet workers needs, will indeed help them get the work done
