We live in a globalized economic, social and technological environment where organizations can be successful only if they have required resources (material resources, facilities and equipment, and human resources). The managers and the organizations should empower and enable employees to accomplish their work in meaningful ways. Empowerment has been described as a means to enable employees to make decisions and as a personal phenomenon where individuals take responsibility for their own actions. The aim of the present study was to present effective methods and techniques of employee empowerment which constitute for the organization a source of competitive advantage. The paper will present and explain empowerment methods and techniques such as: (a) organizational culture, (b) vision statements, (c) organizational values, (d) teamwork, (e) the role of manager - leadership, (f) devolving responsibility - accountability, (g) information sharing, (h) continuous training, (i) appraisal rewards, (j) goal setting, and (k) performance appraisal process.
