Managing Isn’t Easy—But That’s No Excuse to Shirk the Responsibility

Evil HR Lady

Sometimes it seems that managers do nothing while their employees do all the work. So why should managers make more money to sit in air-conditioned offices and do paperwork while everyone else works hard? There is a difference between managing and doing , and in many cases (but certainly not all cases), managing is harder than doing. Sure, a manager’s work might be physically less demanding, but don’t underestimate the difficulty or importance of that work. Responsibility No. 1: Hiring.

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: Is it okay for folks to clip their nails in the office? In my last two cubicle-type jobs, there has been at least one person who clips their nails in the office on a regular basis. I think that practice is absolutely revolting (groom at home, people!), but other people I’ve vented to seem to think it’s no big deal. I don’t even know who the culprit is, so I have no idea how to address it — I just hear CLIP. every few days and want to die.

how can I hire good candidates to work in a dysfunctional environment?

Ask A Manager

A reader writes: I work for a small organization (about 40 employees) that is currently in transition. We have had significant staff turnover in the last two years, and the result has pushed the organization into a level of dysfunction that I know will drive many good quality candidates away. However, I still have to hire people (I have two positions currently open), and I want to hire the best people possible, particularly as I think that poor hires will just make the situation worse.
