The 1980s saw a massive increase in management initiated employment involvement (EI) schemes. Team briefing, quality groups and team working, for instance, have become established practice throughout the developed world as employers recognize the imporatnce of their workforce as a resource.

Managing the Team provides a comprehensive guide to the practice of employee involvement. As well as dealing with specific forms of EI, Marchington provides a framework within which the different EI initiatives can be located and makes use of case studies to illustrate best practice. These studies are drawn from a wide range of industries and sectors.

The book covers all major forms of EI, including:

  • written and face to face communications
  • problem solving techniques
  • task-based job redesign
  • representative participation
  • fnancial involvement

Managing the Team is a highly practical, up to date and comprehensive resource for all HR professionals.
