Abstract

The disclosure of information by management to employees varies significantly between workplaces. The effects of this variance on organizational performance are analysed using WERS98 data. The results show that the impact of information disclosure on organisational performance is more complex than is often assumed in the literature. Overall, there is a significant impact, both direct and indirect, and this varies depending on the level of employee organisational commitment, the type of information disclosed, and the performance outcome
involved. On the whole, the positive effects are less in union settings and in situations where unions are strong.
