When employees start work each day, they make a simple yet profound decision with unparalleled impact on the success of the organization: “How hard am I going to work today?”
Organizations succeed by creating an environment where employees give discretionary effort on a regular basis. Incorporating discretionary effort environment in 
human resource management strategy and practice means employees can freely give their ideas and opinions, understanding that not all of their suggestions will be implemented. 
In this environment, one can see employees as a source of competitive advantage because they are creative as they search for and find solutions to customers’ wants and needs, they take responsibility and are accountable. It is an excellent way to make employees your competitive advantage in the marketplace. 
The amount of discretionary effort employees give determines the innovation of the organization, the goals and objectives achieved, and the increase in sales and profit margins. 
It is no secret, the organization with the most employees giving discretionary effort wins.

The steps outlined in the Discretionary Effort Leadership model are critical to managing 21st century employees. Implement the leadership levels in your human resource management strategy and practice and you’ll become the leader people CHOOSE to follow, not the “Boss” they HAVE to follow.

"Customer service is not a department. It is a philosophy to be embraced by every employee."
                                                                                                                                                                                                                 – Forbes
Employees who give excellent customer service become your competitive advantage in the marketplace. Giving excellent customer service means they are giving you discretionary effort on a regular basis. 
Discretionary effort is the difference between what an employee has to do to get a paycheck and what that employee is capable of contributing. 
Closely related to engagement programs, discretionary effort initiatives build on positive engagement programs in place and take employees and the company to the next level in competitiveness. 
Just as customer service is a philosophy, so is discretionary effort and when managers embrace a discretionary effort environment, theygain competitive advantage through employees.
