Balanced Performance / People Culture  

Balancing Act! Performance or People?

What sort of culture exists in your enterprise? Is it consistent or patchy? Is the culture in your area representative of the whole ... or does it stand out in some way or other?

As a good manager of people, there is a real need to find the appropriate balance. Do you push people to increase productivity or can you achieve more for the company by finding ways of encouraging them to perform better? In short, is it profit before people, or the other way around?

Clearly, we would all like to believe that people should come before profit. But the sad reality that managers so often face is that they are forced to focus on cutting costs and maintaining quality instead of thinking about how they can increase staff satisfaction and welfare. Indeed, many managers simply leave that sort of thing up to the Human Resources Manager because they themselves are too busy "fighting bushfires" or "dealing with the alligators".

Well, the good news is that with CBS, there is a more balanced approach to business than we have been used to up till now.
