About the Authors
  • Willing Slaves? explores recent developments in employee relations. It argues that nowadays managers believe that winning workers' hearts and minds is a crucial element of successful management. Yet despite the introduction of new policies, managers have not succeeded in this aim. Workers still place little trust in management and the climate of relations in industry is still one of "them and us". This book argues that the only way to achieve cooperation at work is for managers to take account of workers' views when making decisions.

    • Challenges existing understandings about changes in industrial relations and offers new insights into current developments
    • Provides an in-depth and independent view of how human resource management policies are actually working
    • Presents detailed evaluation of the strengths and weaknesses of managing without unions
