I have been let go from positions because management has been so terrible they would rather fire me and go through more people than keep me on and adapt (as in train me or the manager to have the skills they need in order to do the job effectively/increase communication/etc).
Think about it. For every 1 mismanaged employee, that's 2/3 of the salary lost on training a new employee. For instance, if someone making 40k is let go because of office politics, that company will spend 20-30 THOUSAND DOLLARS retraining another person. YOU READ THAT RIGHT.
That means that if a manager making 60k a year costs 3 new hires to quit, they are spending THE SAME AMOUNT OF THEIR SALARY to train new people. If more people quit, that's spending DOUBLE of what that poor manager makes in a year.
But if a company just let the poor managers go, they would spend so much less! Fewer employees would leave, the health of employees would increase and there would be a healthier company (financially and internally) all around.
What are some of the BEST pieces of advice you have received from a good manager? What have you learned as a manager to make your job a better place?
