First published in 1988, this book offers a comprehensive description of the functions and performance of organisational surveys from a wide range of European experts in the field.
The book examines the utility of organisational surveys as a method of research for the social sciences and as a support for employee relations strategies and personnel policies. It looks at the broad question of 'what are the key dimensions of an organisation with which managers and researchers should be concerned?' and at how they can be an essential element in a participative management approach to employee relations. Throughout, the book emphasizes the utility of surveys for the study and understanding of organisations.
