What is employee empowerment? 

Employee empowerment refers to how an organization gives employees confidence and a certain level of autonomy in making decisions related to their work responsibilities. It involves giving employees a voice and placing value on their feedback on issues concerning work. It is equipping employees with needed tools, training, and guidance to be their best and give their best at work. 

Organizations that promote employee empowerment also promote a culture of trust and collaboration. As the direct opposite of micromanagement, empowering employees means trusting them enough to make independent decisions. Of course, this is not to say that employees are left to fend for themselves and decide on all work matters. The level of employee empowerment also depends on the organization’s performance management practices. Regular one-on-one meetings and check-ins help managers and direct reports have an open dialogue on goals, objectives, and plans. Proper expectation and accountability setting go hand in hand with employee empowerment. 

The primary benefit of employee empowerment is an increase in employee satisfaction and engagement. In a work environment that fosters support and encouragement, empowered employees will grow more confident in their abilities and knowledge to do their job well and excel
