Résumé

This report explores the opportunities open to employees in workplaces across Europe to participate in decision-making, either in the context of their job or in relation to wider organisational issues affecting their work. Employee involvement is a key component of work organisation, relating to other dimensions such as physical working conditions and work intensity. Two dimensions of employee involvement are covered: task discretion – or the influence that employees can exercise over their immediate work tasks – and organisational participation – or the influence that employees have over work organisation. While in the EU27 as a whole there are limited opportunities for employees to participate in decision-making, the findings point to the clear benefits for employees in working in organisations that give greater scope for their involvement. Crucially, employee involvement has been shown to have a positive effect on employee motivation and psychological wellbeing, critical elements in fostering enhanced work performance and company productivity.

    L’organisation du travail et l’implication des salariés en Europe

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Ce rapport étudie les possibilités dont disposent les salariés sur les lieux de travail de toute l’Europe pour participer à la prise de décisions, que ce soit dans le contexte de leur emploi ou concernant des aspects organisationnels plus généraux qui ont une incidence sur leur travail. L’implication des salariés représente un élément clé de l’organisation du travail, et le rapport examine deux dimensions: la latitude accordée à la réalisation des tâches, c’est-à-dire l’influence que peuvent exercer les salariés sur leurs tâches de travail immédiates, et la participation organisationnelle, c’est-à-dire l’influence que les salariés possèdent sur l’organisation du travail. Bien que les possibilités des salariés dans l’EU-27 de participer aux décisions soient assez limitées, les conclusions mettent en lumière leurs avantages manifestes, notamment sur le plan de la motivation et du bien-être psychologique, des éléments qui jouent un rôle critique dans l’amélioration de la performance professionnelle et de la productivité des entreprises.
