EMPLOYEE PARTICIPATION: A MOTIVATIONAL FACTOR FOR ORGANISATIONAL GROWTH

 

CHAPTER ONE

 

1.0        INTRODUCTION

 

1.1    BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY

 

People can be the firm’s most important resources to manage. They(employees) can also be the most challenging resources to manage well. There is a popular adage, which says that two heads are better than one. Employees who are motivated by participating in decision making of an organisation will increase effort, which subsequently improves efficiency and productivity. It reduces the cost of monitoring employees and it leads to increased commitment (Doucouliagos 1995).

 

Moreover, in the business world, managers are faced with a lot of problems and tasks to be performed in organisation. Although, it has been argued that the effect of size on levels of employee participation is unclear(Heller et al,1998),most findings shows that larger organisations adopt more participative management practices than do smaller organisation. The previously mentioned longitudinal survey of employee involvement found a significant positive relationship between organisational size and employee participation practices (Lawler et al,1995).

 

The importance of employee participation as a business strategy was first stressed in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The Hawthorne studies (Mayo,1933;Roethlisberger and Dickson,1939)gave rise to an increasing interest in the human determinant of productivity. The ‘human relation’ approach to management emphasized the importance of communication between employees and their superiors.

 

The lack of strong empirical support for these theories, however turned initial enthusiasm into mild skepticism (Anthony, Perrewe and Kacmar,1993).Due to human limitations the study of management has advanced into more humanistic aspect of life and this has further  being strengthened by the urge to discover and know more about the individuals working in an organisation.

 

As a result of certain concept like participation especially as it relates to organisational performance have attracted  the attention of many psychologists, sociologists and management parishioners. Shokan O.O,(2000) defines participation to mean having a say in the matters affecting their job and destiny.

 

In conclusion,from my own point of view of this study,managers and the organisation must understand that participation of employees in an organisation even in the decision making of the organisation is a major motivating factor to improve organisation productivity. A final contribution of this study is that it provides support for the conclusion of Cotton et al (1988) and Black and Gregersen (1997)that participation should be studied  as a multi dimension construct.

 

1.2    STATEMENT OF THE PROBLEM

 

The concept of employee participation has been misunderstood by many since the involvement from the field human relations.

 

In view of this, the problem of this study is to examine the extent to which employee participation can be used as a motivational factor for organisational growth. This is because many organisations are ignorant of the fact that employee participation could even be more important than money in motivating people to work willingly and well.
