Participatory management

Mar 21, 2018

Our most recent publication highlights the role of participatory management in high-performing businesses, including a spotlight on New Belgium Brewing, a 100% employee-owned company. Participatory management is a management philosophy and approach in which employees at all levels of an organization are engaged in planning and decision-making to optimize organizational effectiveness. This publication serves as an overview to help business owners and workers understand the value and process of creating a more participatory workplace.

The publication includes a case study on New Belgium, which is headquartered in Denver, Colorado and has a satellite location in Asheville, North Carolina. The case study outlines six key factors that contribute to New Belgium’s belief that their high-performing workplace is directly due to the high involvement, participatory culture they have cultivated.
