Different levels of Business Management
Do you know the different levels in business management? Most people know about supervisors, managers, senior managers, and general managers; however they don't know what the difference is between them. Let's look at each level of business management individually:
With most companies, the general manger is in charge of hiring, firing, and promoting employees. The general manager listens to the managers and makes decisions based on that information about employees or office activities. The day-to-day overseeing of the company is usually delegated to the manger by the general manager. The general manager is also in charge of high level planning that pertain to the future of the company.
Usually the senior manager has the power to hire, fire, and promote employees. They work directly with the supervisors, or they can oversee employees individually. The senior manager is usually in charge of the work assignments for a team or individual employees.
A mangers most important tool is knowing how to manage their employees. The manger is in charge of several different important issues such as customer complaints, hiring, firing, and training of employees. For a larger company, a manager is not in charge of hiring or firing, they only have the power to recommend individuals for a promotion.
If a supervisor has continuous issues with an employee, they can recommend higher action to the manager. A supervisor usually does have power to change the work roles of employees like moving them from one project to a different one.
As you can see, there are several levels in business management. Each person plays an important part in the overall success of the company. Having good supervisors, managers, senior managers, and general managers to support the company will pay off. Every person is in charge of important decisions that keep the company running smoothly and effectively. With proper communication and training, the business management department will run effectively and lead to the overall profitability of the company.
