This book provides a comprehensive guide to the practice of employee involvement (EI). The 1980s saw a massive increase in management initiated EI schemes. Team briefing, quality groups and team working became established practice throughout the developed world as employers increasingly became aware of the importance of their workforce as a resource. Marchington presents:. * A framework within which the different EI initiatives can be located. * Case studies from a wide range of industries - including chemical, motor and media - to illustrate best practice. The book covers all major forms of EI, including:. * Written and face to face communications. * Problem solving techniques and job redesign. * Financial involvement.
