Employees participation is a legally supported means given to employees and providing them with having their say in decision-making which may affect an employment status, whereas employee involvement copes with encouraging employees by managers to commit them to organisational values, which include: financial participation, quality improvement, sharing information and consultation.
Those are three examples of how organisation can involve employees in decision-making:
· To get employees involved in decisions , employees discuss and then put views to the management through a representative. They can also use suggestion letters and employees to make recommendations on the issue.
· Some companies make a decision to give a small shares packages. It makes staff to feel more involved part in decision making in the organisation.
· Second example of getting employees concerned about decision-making is for instance when universities carry out surveys to staff and students to help make decisions in the future.
