Selfmanaging teams

Engaged employees are the foundation of successful, self-organizing companies.

Motivated employees who work together to achieve the organisational goals are the dream of every manager. Increased autonomy among employees leads to greater involvement, higher productivity and increased market competitiveness. This also results in reduced absenteeism, fewer work-related accidents and lower staff turnover.
