Employee empowerment can help companies achieve results if employees are given the ability to be creative and share ideas.  Sometimes employees working in specific areas daily have ideas about how to do things more efficiently.  For example, if an employee in a factory sees an area in his work that is inefficient, he might invent a method or tool to do it better.  If he could share this with the corporate leaders, the whole organization would benefit.

Another way employee empowerment helps companies achieve their goals is through retention.  It is expensive and time-consuming to recruit, hire, train, and develop new employees.  Having happy employees means having to do this less often, which keeps the company running smoothly.
