The Impact of Economic Democracy
Profit-sharing and Employee-Shareholding Schemes
Routledge – 2010 – 160 pages
Series: Routledge Revivals
First published in 1990, this work examines the link between the economic performance of companies and profit sharing. The relationship is a complex one: industrial relations may be improved by schemes, but good employers are likely to introduce profit sharing in any case; and though attitudes to work do change, schemes have more immediate impact on satisfaction an communications than on productivity and effort put into work.
