In response to a congressional request, GAO identified issues for federal agencies to consider in designing and implementing employee involvement programs.

GAO found that: (1) management interest and support are essential for successful program implementation; (2) managers could promote employee involvement through management style changes that demonstrate receptivity to employee input; (3) a clear policy statement and written employee involvement goals are important to effectively operate an involvement program; and (4) a long-term strategy should include readiness assessment, communication, training, and evaluation to ensure coordination between employee incentive practices and organizations' values.
