Personnel Empowerment
 
Empowerment is recognizing and releasing into the organization the power that people already have in their wealth of useful knowledge and internal motivation. Understanding the concept of power is a prerequisite to the comprehension of the contours of empowerment. Primarily, the term ‘Power’ refers to an individual’s capacity to influence the behavior and attitudes of others. This usually also results in the ability to influence events, decisions and possessions. It can be used productively or destructively. Empowerment means giving or restoring a person or a group more power. Oxford Dictionary describes the word empower to mean endowing with the ability or power required for a purpose or task. Empowerment could be facilitated by providing people the access to information and resources and ability to share their views to impact their own as well as organization’s future.
 
Only the people, through education, coalition building, community organizing, resource development, or advocacy assistance, might be able to achieve empowerment for themselves. A mediator, who can work with the lower power person or group to help them represent themselves more effectively, can also achieve it. The word empowerment also refers to authorization and permission to operate on one’s own accord to a reasonable extent in certain situations without having to get approval from anyone else. It is sometimes described that empowerment seeks to restore in employees a sense of their own value and strength and their own capacity to handle life’s problems. Management writer Tom Peters considered empowerment as a necessary condition to improve zest, creativity and automatic symbiosis with the customers. Empowerment involves giving employees a greater degree of control in organizational operations through management’s participation.
 
Personnel Empowerment is a trust-based relationship. It can be described as a way of working together that is fundamentally different from the traditional notion of top-down command and external control. It is a condition that entails vesting greater degrees of self-determination, responsibility and trust in all employees so as to support and liberate people rather than diminish their range of thought and action. Paradoxically, in an empowered workplace, people tend to feel both freedom and self-control. Thus, empowerment leads to a situation in which employees’ commitment and engagement would be released to such an extent that even an ordinary personnel achieves extraordinary performance.
