management behaviours

There is growing and compelling evidence from research that good work is good for people’s health and well-being, consequently for the organisations they work in.

One crucial thing that makes good work is a good manager.
Research funded by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and Investors in People (IiP) has identified the following four broad groups of competencies that managers need to demonstrate to improve the health and well-being of their staff thereby reducing stress levels and absence amongst their staff.
Respectful and responsible:
Being respectful, considerate and honest to employee, behaving consistently and calmly and managing the emotions of self and others.
Managing and communicating:
Monitoring and reviewing workloads, prioritisation and planning, rational and responsible problem solving, listening and consulting to provide direction and development opportunities.
Being approachable:
Available to talk to personally, empathic skills, seeking to understand individuals, their motivations and well-being.
Managing situations effectively:
Having a supportive and responsible approach,taking responsibility for resolving issues decisively and objectively, using available resources
