Employee Empowerment

The topic we’ve been talking about in the recent blog postings deserves more emphasis. In that regard, I have two more very important questions for you to think about.

  •  Is employee accountability in your company a strength or a weakness?
  •  Are your employees empowered to do their jobs?

Employee empowerment is a hot topic today and certainly is important in today’s business environment, but without accountability within the organization, the owner or president ends up being the only one held accountable.

I don’t think this is the right way to run a business and hopefully you also agree.

Superior performers want to be empowered to do their jobs and don’t want the boss looking over their shoulders.

The poorer performers don’t want to be accountable and don’t want the boss looking over their shoulders either.

Employee empowerment without accountability can be a real problem.

How do you feel about it?

Please share your thoughts with me.

  1. Richard, I totally agree! Of course a balance of owning the process is important. I have seen to many companies where employees were the process instead of an empowerment of implementing a process.
