Empower your team and build that wall
Today, more and more companies hand over authority to lower levels of the organization. We democratize decision making, since employees usually are far better equipped to figure out what’s good for the work process, what’s good for our customers. Meantime, what happens to the managers?
At Apparens we strongly believe that managers matter! They are the ones we need, to make sure our best people stay on board. Managers help develop everyone else to become part of the ‘best people’ that stay on board. Employees today are empowered by more ways of controlling how they do their jobs. This leads to higher engagement as well as job satisfaction, and serves as a great productivity booster. Most importantly, it leads to better value for customers, and that’s the focus that really matters we want everyone to have. Bossing is out, coaching is in! People in your company are best supported with a coach that will help them grow in their job through meaningful and consistent feedback and development.
