Abstract

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.

    Authors: 
    Eurofound
    Dan ir-rapport jesplora l-opportunitajiet tal-impjegati li jipparteċipaw fit-teħid tad-deċiżjonijiet fuq il-postijiet tax-xogħol fl-Ewropa, jew fil-kuntest tal-impjieg tagħhom jew fir-rigward ta’ kwistjonijiet usa’ ta’ organizzazzjoni li jaffettwawlhom xogħolhom. L-involviment tal-impjegati huwa komponent ewlieni tal-organizzazzjoni tax-xogħol, u r-rapport ikopri żewġ dimensjonijiet: id-diskrezzjoni tal-kompiti ¬– l-influwenza li l-impjegati jistgħu jeżerċitaw fuq il-kompiti immedjati tax-xogħol tagħhom – u l-partiċipazzjoni fl-organizzazzjoni – l-influwenza li l-impjegati għandhom fuq l-organizzazzjoni tax-xogħol. Waqt li l-opportunitajiet ta’ parteċipazzjoni fit-teħid tad-deċiżjonijiet huma pjuttost limitati għall-impjegati fl-UE27, is-sejbiet jindikaw il-benefiċċji ċari, partikolarment f’termini tal-motivazzjoni tal-impjegati u l-benessri psikoloġiku tagħhom, li huma elementi kritiċi fit-trawwim ta’ titjib fil-prestazzjoni tax-xogħol u fil-produttività tal-kumpanija.
