At present, most companies pay more attention on the sustainable operation, thereby concentrating on motivating employees and give them power to make decision. In the operating process of business, employees are regarded as an important group and should be considered more, for example, managers play a vital role in taking care of the staff’s needs and make effort to satisfy their demands such as some physiological needs, safety of work, sense of belongings and responsibility, bonus and promotion. Through these methods, employees are motivated and more hardworking in the future. In addition, managers cannot always control everything, which makes other think that they are monitored and have not freedom to show their talent and creativity. As a consequence, the development of company would be restrained. The effective empowerment would not only make employees have the power of control, but also make them more responsible to work, provided that once there is something trouble, the decision maker has duty to afford the bad effect.
According to the case of Pixar Animation Studios, it is concluded that company should be more concerned about the employees’ needs in order to enhance the creativity. Any one must be motivated by some special demands from the lowest level of physiological needs to the highest. The best company can make any efforts to satisfy employees’ demands and offer the environment for them to show the talents, giving them opportunities to achieve the career goal, in the meanwhile, get access to the corporate goal (Salancik, &Pfeffer, 2012). Pixar Animation Studios is an outstanding company that motivated their employees. The higher level of the demand would bring the obvious effect that employees would be motivated.
Firstly, in terms of equity theory for empowerment, employees should build up the sense of equity by the guidance of managers ( Leventhal, 2012), in the physiological activities, people always overvalue their contribution and achievement and undervalue the remuneration, which would make them form the phenomenon of unbalanced mentality. Besides, the sense of equity would influence the initiative of entire organization (Huseman, &Hatfield, & Miles, 2011), it is necessary to help employees to solve problem, take care of the disadvantaged group. Secondly, Pixar Animation Studios make an effort to provide good working environment for employees, empowering them to be more creative to develop more new software and films. As a result, this studio does well in empowerment management, for example, the technological and creative employees have gotten numerous film awards, besides, it achieved the first Vanguard Award in 2002 and John Lasseter has won two Oscars because of his direction, this honor is the best proof for the contribution of empowerment to Studio’s success.
