  • Leaders, managers and organizations must "involve" their employees. They must both encourage and allow them to contribute meaningfully in work-related activities in order to increase commitment. But, how is it accomplished? Successful employee involvement requires leaders/managers to:Initiate and maintain the process of involvement & provide access to resources that people need in order to contribute. It is only when involvement is practiced effectively that human commitment and creativity will fuel process improvement.

Self-Assessment [Call for Price]
Adapting the work of Abraham Maslow, the PMS examines how often leaders/managers provide opportunities for others to experience personal involvement and influence at work.The resulting profile reveals the motivational significance of its components as described by Maslow's Need-Hierarchy. Then by comparing data with the EIS, the leader/manager discovers their impact and can explore avenues for change.

Access Management Survey (AMS)
A socio-technical approach to providing opportunities for involvement.
emp_involve3 Self-Assessment [Call for Price]
Are managers truly providing opportunities for involvement? Or, are they denying access to the crucial supports needed for involvement? The AMS gives managers information on how effectively they manage the socio-technical aspects of work. It profiles the degree to which they ensure employee access to five critical supports for involvement: (1) the problem itself, (2) the people involved, (3) needed information and resources, (4) emotional and procedural supports, and (5) the solution. Provides essential data for sustaining employee involvement over time.
