In this senior management retains their right to take the final call; however, employees are encouraged to be vocal about their suggestions and opinions as well regarding workspace, environment and even the mid level management. Although, there is some criticism regarding the feasibility of this method as it can be difficult to follow this methodology with a finance oriented company that may need to downsize; but nevertheless, it will surely lead to better interaction and transparency in official procedures leading to a healthy work environment.
