This article discusses the move of a number of businesses to set up employee forums under the information and consultation regulations in Great Britain. The author explores the consequences of the move. He warns that management drove the detailed changes, with little or no influence exerted by employees or unions. He also claims that the new structures reflected strong managerial acceptance of the link between effective employee participation and corporate performance through building trust and improving two-way communications.
