Why is that? Because in all the surveys for the last 25 years, what employees say they want the most is the opportunity and freedom to get their job done, to feel like they make a difference, to contribute something to their community, and to have more responsibility. Allowing employees to have what they most want not only increases their health and well being, it also increases their job satisfaction, productivity, and your profits. So give it to them already.
