Background of Study
The concept of employee empowerment in the management science literature has been ascribed to diverse meanings as most organizations claim its uses in the management and operations of their work processes. However, a large spectrum of definitions on the concept employee empowerment are in congruous with the view that empowerment portends giving employees discretion, association, self-control and self-efficacy over certain task-related activities (Randolph, 1995; Meyerson & Dewettinck, 2012; Jacquiline, 2014; Huxtable, 1994; Spreitzer, 1995; Arnold, Arad, Rhoades & Drasgow, 2000). Ahmed (2020) defines employee empowerment as when management of workplaces give their employees more freedom and thereby making them more accountable in every task they handle. It also means giving employees permission to take decisions and actions that affect their organization for mutual benefits. With the deployment of employee empowerment mechanisms, power, authority, responsibility, resources, freedom to take decisions and solve work related problem among employees are enhanced. This denotes that employees who are engaged are saddled with the responsibility to enhance productivity and higher performance while enhancing effective harmonious work environment.
