Abstract

Employee Involvement (EI) programs should mainly appear either where "workplace transformation" occurs or where managers create a "disposable workplace." Cluster analysis of Australian workplace data supports the notion that transformed and disposable workplaces are distinct from each other and from traditional workplaces. These workplace categories are related to the reported incidence of EI programs as hypothesized.
