The Respectful Supervisor Series
Would you like your employees to perform better, be more committed to the organization, and find their jobs more enjoyable? Studies show that supervisors have the biggest impact on employee performance and job satisfaction. But not every supervisor understands how to motivate and engage employees. They need support and training to help their employees feel respected and valued. These videos provide outstanding tips and examples to aid supervisors in becoming more effective in fostering a healthy work environment.
Statistics from a multitude of sources show that many supervisors fall short in treating their employees respectfully. Only 21% of employees feel strongly valued at work. Whether supervisors see civility as a sign of weakness in a leader, are mimicking behaviour they’ve seen modeled by leaders they’ve worked for in the past, or simply feel they are “too busy” to be nice; supervisors who fail to treat employees with respect need support – including effective training – to help them improve.
The alternative is simply too expensive, because when supervisor incivility is left unchecked employee performance and well-being suffer, organizational results decline, supervisors and managers fail
