Abstract

Will empowering employees to manage their own careers bring about better job performance or will a more permissive environment lead to abuses? Dale Simpson, managing director of a human resources consultancy, leans towards the former, but he knows that most employers would rather hold on to the reins. After all, most employer-employee relationships today are premised on distrust – starting with the signing of a contractual agreement that holds each party legally liable for non-compliance. He believes, however, that employers can reap great benefits when they think of their relationship with employees as a 'marriage', bound not only by law, but also, love and trust.
