The Need for Great Managers
The main driver for employee retention is having a great boss. In fact, according to Gallup Management Research, 70% of an employee’s engagement is determined by the employee’s relationship with their direct supervisor Most managers have been promoted from staff positions but have never received management training. When you train managers, everyone wins! Your employees win, your customers win, and your organization wins. Great managers produce higher employee engagement, productivity, retention, improved teamwork, and higher customer satisfaction.
