Should employees have any say in their supervisor or managers position?
Who better to judge whether a manager is meeting the needs of the position than those who report to them. A manager can present to their superiors any variation of facts – but from the bottom looking up, it’s harder to cover up managerial deficiences.
A good manager:
- puts their employees needs first
- communicates company policy and goals clearly
- leads by example
- encourages teamwork
- treats their employees respectfully and professionally
- encourages professional growth of their staff
It isn’t always easy to see if those things are being met, but an employee feels the pain of shortfalls in these areas acutely.
So, should employees be able to fire their boss? Or at least have a clear, no consequences say in the matter?
