Impact on Others
Management decisions can affect your employees' productivity, attitude and effectiveness at work. For example, when dividing employees into teams for a large project, a manager's team-making decisions can affect the project's outcome. If they create teams using teammates who work together well, their overall productivity may increase. Managers who understand which employees perform what tasks most adequately can increase department productivity.
Management decisions can also affect how often employees meet deadlines. For example, if a manager creates acceptable deadlines for each team member, they may be more likely to meet them on time. Creating appropriate deadlines based on your team's performance can also help manage workplace stress by giving your staff enough time for assignments.
Decisions affect your company reputation
As a leader, your decisions can affect your department's reputation. The products you choose to create, the brand you promote and the messages you convey to your customers can also affect your corporation's reputation. Decisions that exclude public view, such as your employee schedule, can affect reputation. For example, if you introduce a generous paid time off policy, employees may tell others, such as friends or family, about this positive change. Those who learn about the policy may feel more inclined to purchase from a business it views as supportive of its staff.
Decisions change your workplace environment
Decisions you make in the workplace can affect the environment for both you and your employees. Decisions concerning staff, budget and equipment can affect a work environment's space and stress level. For example, hiring new employees during a busy season can help reduce stress. Management decisions can help ease workplace tension and improve productivity. Choosing how often to hire employees can also affect a workplace environment. For example, if you hire employees at the same time every year, current employees may better prepare themselves for new hire training.
