Why micromanagement should be consigned to history

Micromanagement belongs in the realms of history Many managers who are in their forties and fifties have spent their careers practising dehumanising and disempowering micromanagement styles that, let’s be honest, date back to the cotton mill days. With the advent of hybrid working, it’s literally not possible to be watching over employees’ shoulders 24/7 – not that we should we want to. Knowing how to monitor productivity based on outcomes, rather than tasks, is a skills gap many managers are now [...]

End of Covid Restrictions – What now for employers?

How do we manage the end of Covid restrictions in the workplace? The end of Covid restrictions is here and the legal duty to self-isolate if a person tests positive for Covid has been scrapped from Thursday 24th February 2022.

The Unlimited Holiday Policy is simply HR click-bait

Is this trend of the ‘Unlimited Holiday Policy’ simply click-bait for businesses? “But surely an unlimited holiday policy is the company-benefit dream for employees?” I hear you ask! No, in my experience and opinion, absolutely not! Why? Presenteeism culture Because the UK has a terrible presenteeism culture which makes employees feel guilty for taking time off. If employees are not given a specific number of days to take off in the year, they tend not to take much at all. The concept of unlimited holiday [...]
