There has been a proliferation of non-union organisations in the recent times. The current business environment is changing representation of employee voice from collective union to individual communication with the organisation. This research explores the factors that influence employee voice in a non-union organisation from the perspective of employees. Using quantitative method of surveys, the research surveyed 36 respondents to understand how they would rate factors affecting employee voice from their perspective in order of importance. The research also explored the relationships between the individual employee variables such as age, work experience and type of work and its relationship with how they rate the importance of the factors that affects employee voice. Some of the key findings of the research were that the most important factors that affect employee voice are those related to the relationships between the employee and the organisation. The study found that the supervisor has a key role in employee voice in non-union organisations and the relationship between an employee and supervisor greatly affects how employee views their representation in the organisation. The research also found that there are certain factors that affect employee voice that facilitate their job performance in the organisation and certain factors that affect the employee voice that are related to the rewards that the employee expects for their job performance. The research found that the importance given to the factors that affect employee voice are influenced by age, type of work, number of years of experience, position in the organisation, and number of employees in the organisation.
