I recently was speaking with a company struggling with attracting and retaining employees. In today's labor market, keeping current, capable employees is paramount. Money is part of the equation, but not the long term motivator that will keep them on your team. Dignity of work is. When you sum it up, in the end leadership can either create a culture instilling dignity to all positions, or not.
To accomplish this leaders must listen, empower, celebrate failure and recognize those who are willing to take risks on your company's behalf, and allow decisions to be made at the lowest appropriate level. The more successful the results from this approach, the more you should release decision making authority.
