Informal employee voice: filling the gaps or reinforcing the status quo?

Mick Marchington, Jane Suter

Research output: Contribution to conferenceOther

Abstract

Giving employees greater influence over how they undertake their work and encouraging their input in decision making is believed to be beneficial for both employees and employers. Likewise, there is some evidence that employee voice through institutional mechanisms such as unionization, provides benefits including enhanced productivity and lower turnover. However, there are many mechanisms by which workers can exert voice, and a number of stake-holders that can be affected. This session will show the benefits of expanding the concept of employee voice, and bring fresh approaches to the question of how worker input affects organizations, and their stakeholders.
