WHAT IS A FRONTLINE MANAGER ?

• The term 'Frontline Manager' covers a range of different position descriptions


including 'supervisor', 'foreperson', 'team leader', 'superintendent' and 'office
co-ordinator'.
• Whatever their title, Frontline Managers are essentially the interface between
the workforce and senior management.
• They are people managers who co-ordinate and lead the workforce on a day-
to-day basis, in pursuit of the organisation's strategic goals.

FLMs NEED :

• A good working relationship with their ownmanagers.


• This was by far the most important factor influencingtheir own levels of
commitment to the organisation and includes being treatedwith respect and a
sense of job security.
• Time to carry out their peoplemanagement roles as there is a tendency
for these "soft" parts of the role to bedriven out in favour of other duties
such as controlling, budgeting and monitoring.
• To be carefully selected with moreattention paid to behaviour
competencies such as communicationand emotional intelligence..
• The support of strong organisationalvalues which give emphasis to the
fundamentals of people management and show clearly those leadership
behaviours expected and those not permitted.
• proper skills training in activities such as communications and handling
discipline and grievances.
• A sense of career opportunity – anyfeeling of being stuck in a dead end job
will see a huge drop in commitment .

COMPETENCIES :
• Workplace competency is the combination of underpinning knowledge, skills
and understanding that enable a person to perform their work to a defined
standard in the workplace.

• The Frontline Management Competencies provide a framework against which


current competencies can be assessed and development targets set.

• If participants can already perform the competencies, this achievement will be


recognised.

• If not, the participant will prepare an Individual Development plan to work


towards competency.

may be formally recognised as a qualification development .
