Your employees are being paid to do the best job possible during work hours. Socializing interrupts their own work, and it also disrupts the work of other employees. As a manager, you need to clarify an employee’s role and expectations in your own mind, and then clearly and specifically relay those expectations to the employee.
Trainer Comments: When working with employees, it is important to always treat them with respect and care. This is as important to their success as it is to yours. A job well done is as important to people today as it ever was, and part of your job as manager is to help your employees achieve that goal. In many cases, when employees don’t complete their work appropriately, it is because they do not clearly understand what’s expected of them. They have not received the necessary training or instruction to do their jobs correctly.
