The new Amsterdam Treaty — which incorporates the Social Chapter — was signed in October. The UK will now be affected by a number of European directives from which it had previously opted out. Employee information and consultation is one such directive. This article describes the best practice revealed by Towers Perrin research in implementing this directive. The results point towards the logic of companies taking a strategic look at their communications in order to develop a cohesive policy that takes into account the requirements of this and other forthcoming European social legislation that has communication as its central theme.
