The concept of employee empowerment has evolved considerably during the past years, in fact this evolution has gone hand in hand with the way employees see their relationship with their employer. Gone are the days of sixty hour weeks with no thanks or recompense, gone are the days of staying with one employer all your working life and above all gone are the days of accepting a professional stalemate situation. However, this does not mean that employee empowerment is all about trade unions and collective agreements, it is in fact a far less tangible and yet all the more crucial aspect of the way we expect to work: nowadays people expect to be treated humanely, they expect their competencies to be recognized and they want to be able to determine how they will set about tackling their tasks and meeting their objectives. Far more people than you would probably imagine want to see progress, this motivates them to work overtime and go that extra mile.
Were you wondering why there has been all this recent buzz about engagement? Looking at studies from 2017, Gallup found that in Luxembourg approximately 80% of the respondents felt disengaged in their work and in addition 12% felt actively disengaged – and Luxembourg is among the countries that had better figures than most! This means that a lot of companies have to deal with disengaged and actively disengaged employees, who do not perform to their best ability, all of which inevitably has a direct impact on their productivity levels. In the case of Germany, Gallup estimated the loss in productivity due to actively disengaged employees at between €73 billion and €95 billion per year . This explains why it has become so crucial for companies to consider engagement and to ask themselves how they can turn things around and motivate their employees.
