Empowerment is about giving employees more room to act and more responsibility. This means that employees are
encouraged to use their resources and scope, for example, to implement improvements or solve problems.


In hierarchical organizations, this means that responsibility is delegated top-down to employees at all levels.
This requires a culture of trust and transparency, as well as development measures for managers and employees.
The result, a practiced self-competence of the employees can also be described as empowerment.
