According to the survey, 54% of the employees at companies studied regularly participate in scheduled meetings to discuss workplace issues, 37% of the companies use Total Quality Management, and 13% of all employees participate in self-managed teams. The sample was weighted towards larger firms and oversampled manufacturing companies.
