Front Cover
CIPD Publishing, 2004 - Businesspeople - 177 pages
How many of your employees would stay with you if they were offered another job? CIPD research shows that even employees who are basically satisfied with their lot no longer trust their employer. After years of redundancies, zero bonuses, minimal pay rises and promotion freezes how are you going to get the levels of commitment you need from a workforce that no longer trusts you?How do we get these disgruntled, demotivated " some might say just plain disgusted " employees to take an active and hopefully enthusiastic part in your business?Johnson offers practical remedies for rebuilding the psychological contract and regaining commitment.Johnson argues that although trust has vanished from the workplace there are ways to develop a new psychological contract between employer and employee. This book offers practical, down-to-earth solutions that human resource and general managers can use to re-energise the employees (and themselves!).
