This paper highlights a complexity in the way in which organisations in the UK work that is not always acknowledged in policies intended to promote employment and skills. Public policy has, to some extent, to work on the basis of theoretical simplicity – indeed if policy makers tried to take account of every possible configuration nothing would be achieved - but there is also a need for greater awareness and consideration of the diverse experiences of employees. Developing a better of understanding of networked organisations may allow policy development that ‘goes with the grain’, making use of the ways in which organisations organically grow and connect to enable or influence the behaviour of employers, employees and the broader networks in which they operate.
