Evolving Practices in Human Resource Management: Responses to a Changing World of Work

By Allen I. Kraut; Abraham K. Korman | Go to book overview

Participation is not easily implemented. It is not a quick fix. But it can offer substantial organizational benefits. The new millennium will bring new challenges as well as new incentives for the implementation of worker participation. Buttressed by strong management support, congruent HR practices, computerized information systems designed to foster information sharing and communication, and policies encouraging long-term rather than contingent employment, worker participation may increase the performance and satisfaction of the skilled and diverse workforce of the twenty-first century.
