In the modern workplace, information is the power to help employees have the motivation to succeed and reach the vision of an organization. Unfortunately this is missing in many organizations today. Information in the form of the company’s goals, future plans, and the mindset of executive leadership is what fuels a sense of ownership and encourages a team spirit.
Today’s “information age” workforces, especially those who have entered within the last ten years, want to be a part of something that has lasting value. In order to insure this value is met, they feel a need to understand why they are doing what they are asked to do. They want to feel they can contribute to shaping the company’s path. They want to participate in the planning of the organizations future.
The boss who says or thinks “Because I said so” will not be as successful in today’s culture.
