Quick Reference

Is a rather cynical approach to employee involvement, whereby employers communicate openly with employees during a crisis to help secure their cooperation and support—particularly, if the organization is fighting for survival in severe market conditions. Once the crisis is over, the employer reverts to limited or non-involvement of employees, and asserts the management prerogative. [See cycles of control.]
