The better the effectiveness, the better the performance. After the PDM was introduced in our company, we have seen a wide array of organisational benefits.The employees are more satisfied with their jobs and as a result the staff turn-over has reduced significantly. The reduced staff turnover also shows that the employees commitment to the organisation has increased.

By sharing decision-making with other employees, participants have been able to eventually achieve organization objectives that influence them.
