Employee forums
ARTICLE
Description

Colas has introduced employee forums. Their purpose is to engage in a dialogue with operatives, in an organised and structured manner on topics that are important to the operatives or the company. Twenty-two operatives were chosen, each representing one of the contract units within the company.

The forums raise issues that are relevant to operatives working out on-site. It provides an opportunity to discuss them in a non-confrontational environment and find solutions to problems.

The issues discussed are fed back to the relevant department manager for follow up. A report is then provided to give feedback on what action has been taken.
