Successful empowerment comprises a two-way transfer of knowledge and experience within the client-consultant-contractor teams. Being a small specialist environmental consultancy, it is important that we see empowerment actually happening and one of the ways in which we fulfil this is through the transfer of information about environmental matters to the client and contractor workforces.
We see ‘active empowerment’ requiring an understanding of the interrelationships between career growth, social, economic and environmental issues and identifying opportunities on how the project approach can be structured so that each realizes some benefit.
