Managing in today’s workplace — more than overseeing your employees’ job duties
Today, managers need to be well-versed in the legalities of employment law. Making employees feel safe and represented in the workplace is a huge concern for every Human Resources Department, and knowledgeable managers can help alleviate some of the pressures with this concern.
Creating a culture that includes open communication, a creative work environment and individual accountability is merely skimming the surface of what it means to manage employees. As a manager, you also need to…
