As an organization grows, it because essential to have a strong management team. Good managers can inspire employees to learn and grow within their positions. In contrast, bad managers may lead to poor performance, poor employee retention, and damage a business's reputation. Recruiting capable managers can be difficult. Research done by Tinypulse (2021) revealed that approximately one (1) in every ten (10) people possess the talent necessary to manage people.

 

Strengths of a Manager

Managers are expected to ensure productivity, inspire employees, and delegate tasks. Finding an individual who can strike this balance can be challenging—the consequences of hiring a poor manager come with significant problems. A bad manager is one of the top causes of employee turnover. A Gallup study found that nearly half of all employees that leave a job do so because of their manager. This proves the impact managers have on an organization, from employee performance and engagement to employee retention. 

 

Hiring new managers may seem like a daunting task with lots of risks. But thankfully, there are data-backed qualities of a great manager that will help you make the right decisions.
