Workplace autonomy

Workplace autonomy refers to the degree of control and freedom that employees have in their work. It's the ability of employees to make decisions and take actions without excessive supervision or interference from their managers or leaders. Here are some key elements of workplace autonomy:

  • Employees have flexibility to decide how they do their work.
  • Employees have a say in decisions that affect their work.
  • Employees have the ability to set their own goals and priorities.
  • Employees have the freedom to be innovative and take risks.

Workplace autonomy has been shown to increase employee motivation, engagement, and performance. It can also lead to greater job satisfaction and a stronger sense of ownership and responsibility among employees. However, it's important for managers to provide clear guidance and support while also fostering autonomy to ensure that employees have the resources they need to succeed.
