Structure that is not stifling
For employees to have the self-confidence and independence to develop their own ideas and to realize them, the company must create the right conditions. But how does this structure ideally look like?
On the one hand, the company must give the employees the freedom to be independent, but on the other hand, a structure is necessary that provides orientation for the employees. So, there must be guidelines which do not restrict the employees and give them scope for development.
Exactly this balancing act is a big challenge for many companies. At Semler Company, we keep observing that organizations complain about the lack of commitment and creativity of their employees, but at the same time, the organizations do not create the structures to promote the desired behaviors.
