Employee empowerment

Definition

Employee empowerment is the ability for an employee to make decisions on their own initiative and not feel as though every decision has to be made above them. Employees that feel empowered are likely to be more engaged and satisfied in their work but this must be balanced appropriately with their position and abilities. This delicate balance is important to understand and PxidaTX asks specific questions within its template surveys on employee empowerment to help understand both at an aggregate and individual level exactly how employees feel about their level of empowerment.
