Employees are the ones who know their own workplace best. This knowledge can be utilised by involving them in important company decisions and by encouraging them to make their own suggestions. This yields valuable advice and tangible ideas on how to make work more efficient, safer and healthier. In addition, employees find it very motivating when they can contribute their own individual skills and experience to their daily work.
