Title

Tell us exactly in what way we limit your initiative!

Description

According to Ewing (1977), employee stultification is a feature common to all bureaucracies. As a hierarchy, bureaucracy always seeks control and suppresses freedom inside its structures. Hence, the feelings of despair and suffocation become more prevalent “as the bureaucracy becomes more efficient and the supervisory control systems more advanced”
