Workplace Employment Relations in the West Midlands

Workplace Employment Relations in the West Midlands
 
Duncan Adam and Paul Marginson
 
This report, prepared for the West Midlands Employment Relations Forum’s Steering Group by Duncan Adam and Paul Marginson, provides a first-ever profile of employment relations at workplaces across the West Midlands region. The evidence is drawn from the 2004 Workplace Employment Relations Survey (WERS2004), which is widely regarded as providing the most authoritative and comprehensive survey-based portrait of workplace employment practice in Britain. The report presents findings on a range of topics from West Midlands workplaces surveyed in WERS2004, and compares these with the national picture. The findings draw on responses from both managers and employees at these workplaces. The full report can be downloaded here
