  • Abstract Employee participation in decision making(PDM)is “ a conscious and intended effort by individuals at a higher level in an organization to provide visible extra-role or role-expanding opportunities for individuals or groups at a lower level in the organization to have greater voice in one or more areas of organizational performance”. Thus,it is important especially for vertical hierarchical organizations. Many employee participation programs are applied such as quality circle、 suggestion system、employee ownership program、employee who is a representative on the board of directors . Many researchers supported some contributions through PDM programs on organization performances such as cost reduction and quality improvement. PDM also provides job satisfaction and job performance on individual in some reports .
    But some researchers studied from meta- analysis concluded that” PDM can have statistically significant effects,but the average size of this effects is too small to be valuable”. Some researches viewed PDM as a medium only for information change and knowledge expansion. PDM is necessary and sufficient although it could not affect satisfaction or performance directly. 
    The data is collected from China Steel Company that has 8750 employees. This company is transformed from government ownership therefore there are many PDM activities. We used questionnaires to ask employee and study the relations between PDM and job performance、job satisfaction.
    This study we found there is small effects on individual performance and satisfaction. We also found information participation(change、interaction)can affect PDM activities each other and can explain internal satisfaction of individual. From this study we could find internal satisfaction affects contextual performance that is the base of good task performance
    We conclude it is most important to perform PDM activities and encourage employee to join. This is one of key factors for competition in the industry.
