As businesses we all face difficult choices in today's tough economic environment. Organisational change, workplace disputes, workforce motivation, issues with trade unions and so on can all have an impact on both survival and growth. For many employers, making sure that there is a productive, efficient working environment on the shop-floor where front-line managers can get the best from their staff is key to reducing costs and building the competitive edge in developing sales.
Research shows that the key relationship in the workplace is between an individual and their immediate line manager. It is the line manager who has the greatest impact on the motivation and performance of employees. Positive encouragement of employees should be a prime consideration for any business and any manager within that business.
