Description

What does it mean to have voice in the modern workplace?

New types of employment relationship are increasingly challenging and raising questions about people’s ability to have a say in the workplace. For example, how and should workers in the ‘gig economy’ be given opportunities to express their views? We need a new framework for voice that would enable workers and employers to fully benefit from sharing of expertise, ideas and opinions in the context of modern working practices. We argue that traditional approaches to employee voice have been limited in scope, and organisations could be missing out on dimensions of voice that drive shared value creation.

Louisa joined the CIPD in 2015, specialising in research on professionalism and key drivers impacting the future of work. Her current research is investigating what it means to have a meaningful voice at work. Prior to this, she worked on workplace well-being, employability, and professional identity streams. With an undergraduate degree in psychology, Louisa studied the changing roles of HR and impact on trust during a Master’s at the University of Bath.
