Abstract

As organisations strive to achieve competitive advantage in a global environment facing dynamic change and increasing competition for resources, markets, and business success, it appears that many organisations are turning to their workforce as an important asset. Thus, organisations are harnessing the skills, experiences, knowledge, and creativity of their employees in a collaborative manner to remain sustainable and profitable. This informs the present research investigation in which there is an examination of the impact of employee participation in decision-making on organisational performance in Dangote Cement Plc (DCP) Nigeria. Although extant literature is filled with studies that have examined the effect of employee participation in decision-making on organisational performance of public and private organisations, gaps exist in the areas of setting (Nigeria), identification of factors hindering employee participation in decision-making in private firms, and latent constructs in employee participation in decision-making which jointly predict organisational performance. Quantitative research methodology, using a cross-sectional survey design, was employed. Data were collected from 100 employees of DCP in their Lagos’ headquarters office. Pearson Correlation and Multiple Regression Analyses were used for the data analysis. The study finds that employee participation in decision making has significant effect on organisational productivity in DCP; informal participation, consultative participation, representative participation, and short-term participation jointly predict organisational performance in DCP; employee participation in decision-making has significant relationship with organisational performance in DCP; there are factors which could hinder the contribution of employees in decision-making in DCP. Findings of the study show that organisations now have access to different styles of employee participation in decision-making which could help modern firms to achieve organisational performance. Factors that can inhibit employee participation in decision-making are also to be identified, isolated and addressed. The contribution of the current study is its expansion of literature on the subject of employee participation in decision- making and its effect on organisational performance.
