Employee Participation and the Quality of Work

Lecture by Duncan Gallie, Oxford University


4 May 2016, 17.00 - 19.00

Seminar Room, Convento


Although the importance of reform to improve the quality of work has been rising on the agenda of policy makers, there is still little agreement about the factors that account for variations in work quality.  In particular, there has been considerable controversy about whether initiatives to introduce channels for direct employee participation at work have been beneficial or detrimental to the quality of work. The paper will draw on evidence both from cross-national data and UK national studies to assess the effectiveness of employee involvement in decision making as a mechanism for improving working conditions and creating higher levels of employee well-being at work.
