Employee involvement can supplement strong corporate cultures to develop innovative organizations. Executives from forty successful companies responded to interviews on the organization's values and involvement practices. Structural equation analysis indicate that effective involvement – measured by the use of employee problem solving groups, cooperative interaction, and employee influence – was a critical mediating mechanism between people-oriented values and firm performance. These results suggest the complex challenge of developing a successful organization and guides for making an organization both value-driven and productive.
