Please say it ain’t so!
Managers, that cream in the Oreo between leadership and employees are getting squashed as a budget priority for development.
Managers, who have the ability to fundamentally determine whether a peak performer stays or is engaged in his/her work, are one of the most under-appreciated employees in America. This is according to a 2015 study of 205 Training and HR executives by Kelton Research and Root, Inc. 69% of the trainers surveyed say their senior leaders don’t believe there is a strong link between effective management training and business performance. Yet, the Bureau of National Affairs estimates businesses lose $11 billion lost each year from dis-engaged workers.
In the study, senior leaders prioritized reducing overhead or investing in technology upgrades over management training.
