IPA Involve - raising performance through workplace engagement

Latest news

  • Common rights in a single market? The EU and rights at work in the UKThe debate over Britain's role within the European Union continues to rumble on. Few issues incite the fury of Eurosceptics more than the EU's influence over employment regulation in the UK. In this article, Nita Clarke the Director of the IPA highlights the findings of new IPA research on the EU and rights at work in the UK. She argues that the EU has been fundamental in strengthening workplace rights, but refutes the claim that British businesses are drowning in EU red tape.
  • Democracy in the workplace - An idea whose time has come?The Information and Consultation of Employees Regulations were seen as an opportunity to strengthen involvement and engagement at work. But it is fair to say that their impact has been more limited than many of us had hoped. In this article, Tim Page of the TUC summarises their recent research on information and consultation. He explains the limitations of the ICE regs in the UK, looks at how they work elsewhere in the EU, and draws some lessons as to how we might improve them.
  • News in Brief - September 2014All the latest news from the world of employee engagement and industrial relations.
  • Making work better, making Britain betterWith the general election now just months away, in this article, Frances O'Grady the General Secretary of the TUC sets out a manifesto for better work. She argues that Britain needs a completely new kind of workplace architecture from stronger employment rights to a fairer distribution of reward and a much more powerful voice for workers.
