    This research paper aims to understand how organizations can give a voice to their
    employees and thereby tap into their innovative ideas and suggestions. To do so,
    data has been selected from six case organizations in the UK, collected by the
    CPWOP in partnership with the CIPD. The findings show how organizations attempt
    to improve employee voice and illustrate which factors stimulate and constrain
    employee innovative voice. Moreover, the results reveal in what ways organizations
    deal with the tensions between human and promotive voice.
