Sample text

These include the number of employees at a workplace, the industry to which it belongs and whether the workplace is privately- or publicly-owned. Such features provide the basis for much of the discussion, scrutiny and analysis in later chapters, and an examination of them will help to ground that discussion. They help to illuminate, as well as explain, some of the variation in employment relations practices. Throughout the survey we relied upon self-classification, accepting managers as best placed to answer questions about the way in which work is organised, their relationship with employees and other broader workplace and organisational structures.

The public sector accounted for 28 per cent of all workplaces, nearly all of which (95 per cent) were part of a wider organisation. Among the 72 per cent of workplaces in the private sector, around a third (36 per cent) were stand-alone sites. Overall, public sector workplaces were somewhat larger than those in the private sector, as they employed 32 per cent of all employees. This is reflected in the average employment size, 103 employees in the private sector and 121 in the public sector. There was no great difference in the distribution of workplaces by employment size within the two sectors except at the top end, where there were a considerable number of very large workplaces in the public sector.
