Where are the voices? New directions in voice and engagement across the globe
MetadataShow full item record
This chapter reviews the literature on employee voice. The authors examine various types of voice arrangements looking at the purpose of voice arrangements from both employee and management perspectives. It is suggested that employee-initiated voice is typically broader than the management schemes because the latter have as their core concern issues of efficiency and productivity, whereas employee-initiated voice sees employee interests as often compatible, but nevertheless separate from those of management. In examining voice arrangements across the globe, special attention is focused on the regulatory context, and the chapter draws on the varieties of capitalism literature to show how and why voice arrangements vary in different national settings.
