Employee Empowerment – A Driving Factor for Success
Updated: Jul 15, 2021
Employee Empowerment is a philosophy that believes in enriching employees’ jobs by giving power to exercise control over and take responsibility for outcomes of efforts.
At TreisTek, we are always concerned about the knowledge, skill and ability of our employees because we think they are the real drivers of business. We emphasize on autonomy, proper information, responsibility and individual participation to enhance organizational excellence. Here, no individual effort goes unnoticed. We always ensure that employees having the right mix of information, knowledge, power and rewards are encouraged to work more enthusiastically.
In order to make our employees feel empowered, we follow the below steps:
Listen and respond to their comments
Provide necessary training
Provide encouragement by management and fellow employees
Provide necessary resources to do their jobs
Allow access to relevant information
Matching employees to their tasks according to training and experience
As we are aware, “to be effective, practical and achievable, empowerment and quality must start at the top”. We have adopted proactive and participative management practices which promote an organizational climate that is supportive, respectful and trusting.
Seek solutions over problems
We encourage our employees to be a part of the solution over the problem. We create a culture where they come to us not only with a problem, but with a minimum of two potential solutions, their recommendations and reasons why these solutions will work. A collaborative approach to problem-solving helps us empower and encourage them to think laterally.
Empowering can motivate employees and fuel their creativity; however, it can also create additional burdens and stress that may hurt their routine performance. So, it is crucial to understand that empowering employees has its limits and factors like trust and experience affect how the behaviors are perceived.
