Supervisors Driven By Bottom Line Fail To Get Top Performance From Employees, Baylor Study Says
  • Managers who focus only on profits, and disregard employee well-being, ethics and environmental concerns, might actually be hurting profits.
  • This is based on a survey of 433 supervisors with 433 of their respective employees in various jobs and industries.
  • High-BLM (Bottom Line Mentality) managers build low-quality relationships, which leads to employees withholding performance.
  • Even when both supers and employees have high-BLM, the negative performance is still evident.
  • Supervisors hold more responsibility for profit, but when their BLM becomes too much, they might be sacrificing employee respect, loyalty and liking.
