In this podcast episode, DecisionWise VP of Consulting Christian Nielsen, discusses the topic of trust between employees and the management of an organization.
In this age of technology, some companies have implemented new ways of monitoring their employees, from tracking internet and email usage to running surveillance on their driving habits through GPS! But as companies use these tactics to improve efficiency, they send the message that they don’t trust their employees. How can an employee bring their best selves to their work if they have no autonomy?
Beyond this, managers need to send the message that they trust their employees through their actions, such as the way they delegate (or don’t delegate) assignments and the conversations they have with the individuals on their team.
