Partnership, high performance work systems and quality of working life
Danford, Andy; Richardson, Mike; Stewart, Paul; Tailby, Stephanie; Upchurch, Martin
The paper measures the effects of workplace partnership and selected high performance work practices on four different dimensions of employee experience. Whilst the partnership-high performance work systems nexus seems to have little impact on employees' job satisfaction or sense of attachment, it does, however, have a negative impact on both workplace stress and employee evaluations of union performance. The analysis thus questions common assumptions about the inevitability of 'mutual gain' and the necessity of employer/union partnership. © Journal compilation © 2008 Blackwell Publishing Ltd.
