Why Good Managers Are So Rare

Why Good Managers Are So Rare | Employee Wellness by Wellness Corporate Solutions | Scoop.it

Gallup has found that one of the most important decisions companies make is simply whom they name manager. Yet our analysis suggests that they usually get it wrong. In fact, Gallup finds that companies fail to choose the candidate with the right talent for the job 82% of the time.

 

Bad managers cost businesses billions of dollars each year, and having too many of them can bring down a company. The only defense against this massive problem is a good offense, because when companies get these decisions wrong, nothing fixes it. Businesses that get it right, however, and hire managers based on talent will thrive and gain a significant competitive advantage.

(From the article):Very few people are able to pull off all five of the requirements of good management. Most managers end up with team members who are at best indifferent toward their work — or are at worst hell-bent on spreading their negativity to colleagues and customers. However, when companies can increase their number of talented managers and double the rate of engaged employees, they achieve, on average, 147% higher earnings per share than their competition.

Daniel Watson's curator insight, April 3, 2014 1:14 AM


A lot has been written in recent times on the subject of employee engagement, and business owners generally don't have the time to digest all the nuances embedded in the copious quantity of information available, so the essence of what is important is of more use to the average business owner.


Simply distilling  the information available relating to improving employee engagement levels, does not provide any form of guidance as to what to prioritise to make an earlier difference, therefore a different approach is needed.


This excellent article by a practicing global director of employee engagement, suggests that by connecting the brand and employees a business owner can make meaningful progress towards improving employee engagement levels, and it outlines the five areas of focus that are key steps to making this happen sooner rather than later.
