Empowerment is giving employees the power to do their job.

The concept of empowerment is closely linked to motivation and customer service. Employees need to feel that their actions count – and empowerment is about making this happen.

Empowerment is a catch-all term that covers:

  • Giving authority to make decisions to front-line staff (e.g. hotel receptionist, call centre assistant)
  • Encouraging employee feedback
  • Showing more trust in employees
