A decade ago the Corporate Executive Board published a report detailing the findings of a study into the role managers can play in employee development.
By almost any standards the sample in this study was large – 8,500 cases drawn from 14 organisations across six industries in nine countries.
One clear finding presented was that:
“those activities that are integrated into manager and employee workflow have the largest impact on employee performance, while those that are distinct events separate from the day-to-day job have less impact.”
