Abstract

This aim of this study was to determine the biographical influences on employee involvement and work team effectiveness.

Significant differences were found with the participative decision-making sub-dimension of employee involvement and length in service. Significant differences were found with both participative decision-making and job satisfaction, and gender. No significant differences surfaced with work team effectiveness and the biographical profiles. The literature review is followed by the results of the study.
