How To Increase Staff Participation Effectively

  1. Encourage staff to voice their concerns and opinions
  2. Describe a proposal for change as tentative – this will encourage debate and discussion rather than staff just saying nothing and being resentful or fearing change
  3. Record ideas and suggestions: this is a good way of developing organisational learning and shows that you are taking staff views and issues/concerns seriously
  4. Look for ways to build upon ideas and suggestions
  5. Be very tactful about expressing concerns about a suggestion
  6. Listen to dissenting views without being defensive towards both the person and their idea
  7. Try to use suggestions offered and deal quickly and carefully with any concerns that are raised
  8. Always show appreciation for suggestions that you receive

Good Luck!
