Empowered is efficient by nature. Micro-managers are never managers with the most productive workplace. If employees are stuck in a rigid structure, weighed down by too much involvement from upper management, then they simply can't do their jobs in the most productive efficient manner. The people doing the work know the best way to get the work done. A workplace can't be bereft of rules, but there has to be room for the employee make decisions on their own.

Secondly, the creative minds of an entire workplace are set free in an empowered environment. If your employees know they have the freedom to help set policy and find creative, innovative ways to do business, then it sets their minds free. Imagine the collective minds of an entire company together solving problems and finding solutions.

Lastly, empowerment makes for a happy workplace. When people feel involved and can use their creative intelligence they feel fulfilled and therefore happy. People need to feel that they are part of something and that their work and minds matter. If they have a part in developing policy and innovating the future they are happy and therefore more productive.

Make sure that you have the most empowered workforce possible. There is no better way to make your organization more productive, efficient, innovative and fulfilled. It takes a dedicated group of individuals to truly have a great business. Get started today on setting up an empowered workplace.
