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.Read less

Organizacija dela in vključevanje zaposlenih v EvropiAuthors:Eurofound
V tem poročilu so proučene možnosti zaposlenih na delovnih mestih po vsej Evropi, da sodelujejo pri odločanju, bodisi v zvezi s svojim delovnim mestom bodisi v zvezi s širšimi organizacijskimi vprašanji, ki vplivajo na njihovo delo. Vključevanje zaposlenih je ključni del organizacije dela, v poročilu pa sta obravnavani dve razsežnosti: neodvisnost pri opravljanju nalog – vpliv, ki ga imajo zaposleni na neposredne delovne naloge – in organizacijsko sodelovanje – vpliv, ki ga imajo zaposleni na organizacijo dela. Čeprav so možnosti zaposlenih v EU-27, da sodelujejo pri odločanju, precej omejene, pa ugotovitve kažejo jasne koristi, zlasti motiviranost in dobro psihično počutje zaposlenih, ki sta izjemno pomembna elementa za spodbujanje večje delovne učinkovitosti in produktivnosti podjetja.
