The term of empowerment is rarely defined clearly (Greasley et al., 2004) and has been used very loosely by practitioners and academics (Mondros and Wilson, 1994 & Russ and Milam, 1995). One possible reason for this lack of clarity is a the tendency for empowerment to be attached to management concepts, for example, Total Quality Management (TQM) (Greasley et al., 2004). Empowerment has been associated with the redistribution of power so that employees have an increasing degree of flexibility and authority to participate in the decision-making process of an organization (Greasley et al., 2004). Employee involvement does not necessary mean any de jure sharing of authority of power. It is employers who decide whether and how to empower employees so as to generate commitment and enhance their contribution to the organization (Willkinson, 1997).

This level of engagement is driving the business forward, however there is controversy over the definition of employee engagement but the one common theme many academics agree on is that for employee engagement to be switched on there must be psychological and behavioural factors hence why the sense of ownership from the management team in my organisation has influenced the level of satisfaction and job involvement. This is a positive engagement from the management team in our organisation and as a result the organisation is out performing itself year on year Gruman and Saks
David also points towards the dearth of theory based longitudinal studies focussed on impacting engagement levels and measuring their impact on the organisation. Guest argues “… the concept of employee engagement needs to be more clearly defined […] or it needs to be abandoned”. In spite of this Engage for success agrees “Despite there being some debate about the precise meaning of employee engagement there are three things we know about it: it is measurable; it can be correlated with performance; and it varies from poor to great. Most importantly employers can do a great deal to impact on people’s level of engagement.
