Abstract:

Since the early 1970s there has been a proliferation of quality of working life QWL projects. These projects attempt to bring about fundamental changes in organizational and labor-management relationships. Basically, they illustrate the new ways to restructure work in order to improve the organizational effectiveness. This paper reviews QWL efforts in the 1970s and suggests possible characteristics of QWL projects in the 1980s. Author
