Is Management Your Next Step?
As an employee you can take the next step. Corporate managers are looking for focused employees with an aptitude for leading. There are roles available for team leads, supervisiors and managers. Corporate managers would rather promote from within rather than look for a new hire that may not fit the corporate culture.
The fact is many employees do not want these roles. They are perceived as a headache, not worth the trouble and not rewarding. Employees would rather move to another company with better compensation.
For those employees who do want the corporate ladder career, seek a manager to mentor you in your company's leadership strategies and culture. Attend leadership classes and notify Human Relations of your interests. This will assist you taking the next step.
