New research proves that frontline leaders have an enormous impact on employee turnover, productivity, safety, and morale. Team leads, supervisors, and superintendents are the primary link to the frontline workforce and developing them is a major challenge at most companies.
The frontline leaders have skills such as SOPs and job tasks down, but often struggle in engaging, motivating, and communicating with their teams — necessary for effective management.
