Providing sufficient worker participation in business decision-making
Offering adequate worker participation in business decision-making
Changes in work organization that are introduced in enterprises with a view to improving productivity often give rise to problems of adaptation for the workers concerned. There is growing recognition among employers and trade unions that such organizational changes can be more effective in improving efficiency in enterprises when accompanied by a cooperative approach between labour and management. This has led to a revival of interest in the role of both institutional and shop-floor participation schemes in facilitating cooperation within enterprises.
ILO acts to deepen knowledge of the systems of worker participation in decision-making and the associated improvement in personnel policies.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
