Autonomy and Not Money the Key to Satisfaction at Office

Getting a dream job that pays generously is everyone's dream. And why not? As you spend most of your time at the office, you seek the desired job that not only pays you adequately but ensures utmost satisfaction. According to research studies, an organization that is plagued by egotistical attitudes lack employee trust. Building employee trust is of relevance as this adds to the productivity. However, many organizations fail to understand the need to build trust while some are not sure how to go about doing the same.

Building Trust Translates to Productivity

Understanding the need of the employees and what is it that keeps them engaging is the key to improving productivity. In a work culture where bosses are nagging and employees are not left to show their creativity generally are less than their competitors. On the contrary, an organization that focuses on developing employee skills thereby improving their own profitability ace others.

How to Build Employee Trust

The biggest factor to build the trust of employees in an organization is by giving them required autonomy to perform tasks. Autonomy postulates the need for micromanagement of work. What it essentially means is that by giving autonomy to employees they gain the right to control their destinies and can take at least some decisions about work.

What is Autonomy?

Studies across the world have shown that autonomy results in the greater wellbeing of the employees. But what defines autonomy and how much of this is required to keep employees productive is another puzzle. There is a common perception among managers that autonomy means leaving employees isolated gives them an added advantage of working without being supervised and without a team. However, this is not the case, autonomy does not call for doing anything without any limits. Prior limits and controls need to be set within which an employee can decide how autonomous he or she wants to be.

Autonomy actually allows the employees to shape their environment that provides them with the platform to perform their best.

What Makes Autonomy For Employees So Essential

With increasing work pressures and difficulty in achieving a work-life balance, health issues are rising at an alarming rate. Apart from work pressures, nagging bosses and senior managers also create a negative environment that makes working in the office a little difficult. Moreover, stress at work often end up becoming depressed and other chronic illnesses start to penetrate. Due to these issues, there is a need to create an environment where employees can prosper, remain happy and exude wellness.

An employee that is fit mentally and physically is an asset to the organization. A fit employee will bring in innovative methods and ways to work. Therefore to reduce pressure at work greater autonomy can be given to employees. Autonomy within set boundaries but the authority to make decisions that work well for their projects and deadlines.

How Employer Benefits From Autonomy

So why is that autonomy is such a big deal. A recent study conducted on a group of professionals showed that the greater the autonomy at work the higher was the satisfaction among employees. Apart from the study, interaction with employee also brought other factors to the fore that are mostly ignored by employers

The first and the foremost being the negation of a negative environment in the office. Greater independence about taking decisions about work propels a positive environment that sends across a message that employers value the work of the employer. This, in turn, removes any negativity in the office.

Another benefit of letting employees work without constant nagging is that it gives them the freedom to control their tasks and thereby keeping them engaged in the job. This way increased retention of top talent can be ensured.

As employees work independently they tend to be satisfied with the job which in turn translated to office happiness. Studies have shown that a happy employee will be more efficient at work thus increased productivity and more revenue.

How Autonomy Is Good For Employees

As letting autonomy to employees help organizations become profitable, letting employees take their own decisions is also helpful to them in many ways. For instance, too much burden at work can cause stress to employees. From an employees point of view, working within boundaries and yet independently eliminates the chance of being exhausted at work. Less exhaustion means working without stress and more productivity.

The major benefit of working independently at work is that employees start showing so much devotion to the work. The micromanagement of work that too with autonomy keeps employees dedicated to working as they carefully look at details eliminating the chance of any mistakes.

Greater autonomy means workplace satisfaction and reduced chances of any chronic illness. A satisfied employee will remain positive and happy with his clients and colleagues thus reduces the chances of illness like depression at work, heart attacks, and others.

Handing the Reins to Employees

For a manager, handing over the major of tasks with autonomy often becomes tricky as being in that position, getting the work done with responsibility is essential. There is always a risk of committing mistakes and misusing the decision taking power. Therefore,  to hand over reins the following needs to be kept in mind

Start Steadily: Directly and immediately handing over each and every responsibility to your team of employees might backfire as there is a scope of error is they lack experience. Starting slowly and giving ownership of some part of the work is the way forward. But, ownership doesn’t mean that your work is not mine. Even after giving the autonomy being informed about the work and how targets are being managed is required. Giving autonomy slowly then risking giving all at once and taking it back later.

Balanced Autonomy: Not just giving autonomy is important but to achieve a balance so that the scope of error is minimized. Clearly define the boundaries and roles is important. By setting strategic directions, benchmarks, and deadlines for employees to achieve their targets a balance can be tricked. By doing so, a lot of time is left to the managers to devote to other high-level strategic tasks.

Self-Defined Goals: In addition to structuring autonomy, an employee must be encouraged to self-defined goals for a task. This is a way to gauge how efficient and smart an employee is and why more autonomy can be given self-defined goals rather than forced deadlines is a good way to motivate employees to do tasks for their own self and to stand out amongst the team.
