Employee engagement is influenced by the direct manager more than any other single factor. Managers carry the responsibility for aligning the performance of their unit and its staff with overarching organizational goals. They play a vital role in shaping organizational culture. Yet, management and supervisory development is too often ignored or poorly executed.
Ankura’s approach is different. We work with clients to identify the differentiating management skills and competencies that distinguish the most effective managers. We then use this performance model to ensure all managers are willing and able to step up to these proven standards and provide efficient assessments, development opportunities, and tools to support them along the way.
