Initial Participation Audit

FairShares Diagnostics

The FairShares Association’s workforce participation auditing and diagnostic tools were strongly influenced by the following academic paper.

  • Ridley-Duff, R. J. and Ponton, A. (2013) “Workforce Participation: developing a theoretical framework for longitudinal research”, Journal of Co-operative Studies, 46(3), pp. 3-23,

This survey presents ten open questions to gather information on desired workforce participation practices.  It is usually taken before a more searching advanced participation diagnostics survey that pinpoints the priorities of workforce members regarding the participation they desire in each aspect of organisation development.
