In reality, there are many organization which have employee empowerment fail to get the optimal result because they are not concern to skill, ability, knowledge and attitude of the employees and of course it will affect to the result of the empowerment itself. Besides, the level of the employees and certain condition are needed such as structure and culture support in order to reach an optimal result of this concept's implementation.
