We support organisations to build a robust approach to employee voice in workplaces that do not have union representation.
We enable trusted environments where employee voices are heard and creative solutions are delivered.
Improving employee voice
We advocate a systematic approach to employee voice, focusing on the following areas to assess the current status:
What are you trying to achieve through your channels for employee voice?
Are you complying with the spirit of the UK Corporate Governance code or the Wates Principles? How do people issues get discussed at board level?
If you have formal meetings, what gets discussed? Is there a good balance of employee and employer items? Is it genuinely a forum for all employees? Are some employees missing?
If you have employee networks, how effective are they? Is their role clear? Do they need capability training? Do they have the support of senior leaders?
What support and training do your line managers have to enable a healthy exchange of views with their teams?
The outcome of this assessment provides a detailed, comprehensive action plan to deliver improved employee voice throughout your organisation.
