Evaluation of de-skilling thesis

  • Other academics are critical of Braverman’s ideas by arguing some firms adopt a more humanist approach allowing them to engage with their employees
  • Mayo’s research, on behalf of Chicago’s Western Electricity Company, sort out factors employees could use to motivate and inspire their workforce (it was Mayo’s research which coined the term Hawthorne Effect) these were:
  • 1. job enrichment
  • 2. job rotation
  • 3. job enlargement
  • 4. team-working
