What is Task Autonomy


Task Autonomy means a job where certain degree of freedom (in actions and decision-making) is allowed to a task doer. Autonomy refers to a level of authority delegated to an employee from his or her manager in order to support this subordinate’s specific manner of working, to promote ability to act quite independently (at a professional’s own discretion), and to minimize employee’s need for addressing the upper management for permissions, approvals, decisions or instructions. The higher task autonomy is assigned to a performer, the wider freedom in doing this work a performer can afford for successful completion of this task. Sufficient level of task autonomy is useful both for managers and employees because it: 

  • Develops a sense of responsibility in the employees;
  • Increases employee motivation and job satisfaction levels;
  • Is a sign of employee’s appropriate competency (skills, experience, management’s trust);
  • Frees the manager’s time from unnecessary interactions with employee;
  • Reduces bureaucracy & administrative routine, hence reduces the overall time worked at a task;
  • Gives more chances to employees for revealing their talents and realizing their ideas;
