UPFRONT Poor managers kill productivity

Poor management is listed as the biggest obstacle to workplace productivity by American workers, according to survey carried out by the Society for Human Resource Management.
It found that nearly six out of 10 respondees cited poor management as the factor that most knocked workplace productivity, with loss of work motivation coming second. Other negative factors such as lack of defined goals and lack of accountability could also be linked to poor workplace management.
The report also explored the impact of “presenteeism” – the triumph of quantity over quality time spent at work. Surprisingly it found that while most HR professionals reckon being at work just to be physically present knocks both worker productivity and morale, employees generally thought it had little impact.
The SHRM’s Workplace Productivity Survey polled sample of 478 HR professionals and 613 employees.
