Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review

Abstract

Management of the employment relationship has been subject to significant change in the last two decades, as the process of globalization has intensified competition in product and labour markets. In this context, modern management theorists and practitioners have commonly emphasised the importance of two-way communication and cooperation between management and labour in determining the success of HRM strategy and maximising workplace efficiency. Cooperation relies upon building employee commitment, and employee consultation and participation are intrinsic to this process.
