The article focuses on the employee empowerment, its dimensions and its ties with entrepreneurial behaviours of organizational participants as the way of improving organizational performance. It states that employee empowerment is a multidimensional phenomenon and it influences intensity of entrepreneurial behaviors in Polish organizations. It influences organizational effectiveness measured by sales growth rate and McKenzie rate. Moreover, the approach to employee empowerment could be an important factor that contributes to encourage entrepreneurship in Polish organizations performing in new uncertain free market conditions.
