Establishment level data from the 1990 British Workplace Industrial Relations Survey are used to analyse links between employee involvement, contingent pay, collective representation and six different indicators of workplace performance: productivity levels and growth, employment changes, the climate of management-employee relations, quits and absenteeism. This information is then distilled to study the respective performance of three forms of workplace governance: employee involvement (EI), collective bargaining and authoritarian. Workplaces with EI governance have the best productivity performance, but authoritarian workplaces have lower quits, lower absenteeism and a better climate of industrial relations than the EI workplaces.
