suggestion scheme

suggestion scheme

a facility for employees to submit suggestions for revision of production equipment and working methods which will lead to improvements in efficiency or product quality. Rewards are generally given for those proposals adopted by management, usually in relation to the improvement in performance which is likely to be achieved. Suggestion schemes have been in vogue recently since they are widely seen as a simple, effective and cheap way of promoting employee identification with the company. However, they require careful management to ensure that the pattern of rewards is seen as fair and worthwhile. See EMPLOYEE INVOLVEMENT.
