More often than not, large companies have several of these roles performed by an individual, such as human resources or payroll, and staff that functions to manage the day-to-day operations. However, in smaller businesses and companies without a large budget for extensive human resource practices, staff may be left to their own devices. Staff can run the show, or so they think. But the reality is that staff needs to know how to manage themselves, and that management plays a role in this process. In fact, some companies actually make sure that the employees understand how important it is to manage staff. Many employees are trained to believe that they are the boss, and that the only way to get ahead is to take orders from the higher-ups. Some managers have actually created a hierarchy within their own departments, with one employee heading the entire department. And, because the managers don't actually know how to run the departments, the results can be disastrous. Managers must play an active role in managing staff, and not just behind the scenes. They need to communicate with employees, encourage team building activities, and work with the leaders of the teams to ensure that the manager understands the mission and purpose of the job. In addition, the manager needs to train employees to do the jobs properly. They also must have the tools and resources to assess performance on the job and encourage performance among lower level workers. The first step to managing staff effectively is understanding how much is actually required from each employee on a day-to-day basis. Most companies actually underestimate the amount of time it takes to achieve a desired result, and therefore under-utilize their people. A good manager knows how to identify opportunities to use people's talents on a regular basis, rather than just in trying to fulfill a quota or pay system. By understanding who the key players are in a team, and how they interact within the larger organization, a manager can design a workable plan for managing staff. The manager should also create a separate but complementary role for each employee, one which enables him to assume a leadership role, providing motivation and drive for those workers who feel under-appreciated. For example, the production manager may assume a leadership role after the completion of each shift, assuming the role of being the team's boss. He would not have a direct management role, but he would still have a meaningful input in regards to the planning of the next shift and its implementation. Another important step towards successful managing staff is ensuring that all employees are informed about changes and initiatives. Having regular team meetings, and other communication channels, such as handouts, brochures and email alerts, is vital for building cohesive teams. This will allow all members of the team to understand the direction, and objectives, of the company, and gain clarity on their role and responsibilities. This is especially relevant for larger organizations that have a large number of departments and offices, where everyone must understand the goals of the company at all times. One of the most overlooked aspects of planning for managing staff is creating a safe working environment, which includes creating a good workable policy for any complaints that may arise, as well as a fair and reasonable workplace behavior policy. Many employers only realize the need to implement this kind of policy after an employee has been unfairly selected for some sort of inappropriate action or outburst. Often the result of such an event is the creation of a hostile work environment, which goes against any type of company policy. Allowing any employee to use his or her rights to bring about changes in the workplace is essential for any small business to successfully operate. Even though there are many factors that go wrong when managing people, there are four main areas that affect the effectiveness of any manager's management approach. Knowing the basics of each area can help any manager to better lead his or her employees and meet their needs in each given situation. With a little effort, a manager can go wrong very rarely, but if proper steps are not taken, then it can be the downfall of any company.
