Employee voice from different perspectives

Employee voice from different perspectives

Professor Jimmy Donaghey Professor John Blenkinsopp Professor Kate Kenny Dr Rea Prouska Dr Stewart Johnstone Dr Sarah Brooks
 

This workshop will introduce participants to a range of diverse perspectives from which voice and silence in organisations can be understood whilst acting as the inaugural event for the voice and silence community (VSC). An understanding of what encourages employees to voice is a fundamental concern for the HR professional and operational manager, yet preoccupations remain over how organisations can create conditions conducive to voice. Voice and silence scholars have traditionally focused on the role of the individual and the manager as main influences over voice and silence, yet contextual factors, as well as different types of voice have been shown to be highly influential. In the morning, the workshop will explore a number of contextual influences such as economic austerity, the presence of trade unions, the formality of voice mechanisms, and managerial processes. In the afternoon we will focus on one particular and topical form of voice, whistleblowing. To finalise the day, a workshop activity will discuss next steps for the voice and silence community, including subsequent events and collaborative opportunities.

Wednesday 6th March 9.30am - 4.30pm

This workshop will be of interest to scholars in the field of voice and silence as well as practitioners interested in how to harness the power of employees’ voices
