Employees don’t leave companies, they leave managers. And if the employees are unhappy and don’t leave, their morale and productivity plummet. You know you have a problem if your customer complaints have increased, more production deadlines aren’t being met, and your revenue is down. Can you afford for this to continue?
My name is Deborah Laurel and I’m the President of Laurel and Associates, Ltd.
If your managers are struggling and your employees are thinking of jumping ship, it will cost you 6 to 9 months of the employee’s salary to fill each vacancy.
Isn’t it time to see that your managers have the managerial and interpersonal skills they need to create a positive and productive work environment, so employees want to stay and, even better, do their best?
I bring practical experience with developing managers in a variety of different industries, based on my years as a management consultant and as an adjunct instructor in the Executive Management Institute in the School of Business at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
Five added values of training your managers include:
- Employee morale will improve.
- Employee productivity will increase.
- You will save the cost of replacing employees.
- Production or service goals will be met.
- Potential applicants will be attracted to the company.
When we have worked together, you will have identified the specific concerns you have regarding your managers’ skillsets, and the results you desire. Your managers will have participated in the workshops, developed the desired skills, and used them to create an engaged and productive workforce. They will have been held accountable for increasing employee morale, productivity, and retention.
Managers are not born, they’re made. If they’re not made well, your entire company suffers the cost. You can’t afford that. Avoid having to let them go. Give them the training they need.
