green labour

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

Is a term applied to new employees who have not yet acquired the skills or been inducted into the working practices and culture of their employing organization. Employees developing greenfield sites often deliberately seek a green workforce who have no prior experience of the industry because they wish to avoid the transplant of established restrictive practices or traditions of trade union militancy. The new, green workforce, that is, constitutes a tabula rasa on which the employer can develop a fresh set of working practices and work attitudes.
