Partnership improves employee relations

Improvements
in employee relations and a greater willingness to accept change are the key
benefits of working in partnership with staff on future business issues, a
survey shows.

Research
reveals that companies working in partnership with their employees have better
staff relations, reduced costs, improved productivity and lower absence rates.

The IRS
Employment Review
poll of more than 34 HR departments across private and
public sectors shows that half the respondents always work in partnership with
their employees.

It
also found that public sector employers are more likely to adopt the
partnership approach, and that all respondents have a positive attitude towards
the issue.

Eight
in 10 organisations claim to have company councils, which are commonly found in
unionised workforces, while six in 10 recognise unions for the purpose of
collective bargaining.
