Lack of involvement of employees in decision making

This preview shows page 3 - 6 out of 8 pages.

Lack of involvement of employees in decision making will reduce the overall morale of the organization. Thus the organizations will have a distinct parting of power between the staff and management. This broadens the gap between the employees and the management and also creates a worse line of communication between the staff and their supervisors. Hence, the staff will no longer see themselves as operative participants in decision making, and they will not understand the importance of their ideas to contribute to the firm, and thus less power to dictate and influence the outcome of their effort. This leads to less satisfaction and a negative attitude towards their position, and the company itself. Moreover, if the staff does not participate in decision making, they become unable to voice out their opinions, and also they become unable to share their skills with others. This worsens the relationship between the staff and the manager, and in other ways, it does not promote a strong sagacity of teamwork between the employees. Since employees do not share their point of views with one another, they become incompetent and ineffective in their task.

ASSESSMENT 3 4 In addition, not involving staff in decision making, and the use of outsourcing wastes the resources of the company. As a result of a lot of time, finances are used, and it provides the company with a short-term assistance from the people who have no clear knowledge of the organization ( Goetsch & Davis, 2014) . When an organization hires consultants from outside it is always pretty expensive, and it might drain the company of its valuable resources in terms of time spent and on fees. Also, when the manager makes all the decisions unanimously without involving the members of staff, conflict may erupt. It might be so because, the manager might make a decision based on personal interest, and not for the interest of the whole organization. Some of the employees may view such an act as bias and unethical, and this might cause internal conflict between the management and staff. This is bad for the organizations since processes like production may be affected, and the image of the organization might be destroyed. In the year 2016, the manager decided to reduce the dividends of all the team members. Bearing in mind that the staff worked as a team, he did not involve the employees as he was making this decision. The decision caused chaos within the organization, as the employees demanded to be told the reason for these deductions, and why were they not involved as this decision was being implemented. The management decided to expand its services and open another branch within the town. Before this decision was implemented, the manager summoned all the team members and asked for their individual opinion. During this meeting, the team members gave various suggestions on how the new branch should look like, and also the management benefited from the new ideas they got from the team.
