Business managers oversee the activities of workers; hire, train and evaluate new employees; and ensure that a company or department is on track to meet its financial goals. Business managers might also develop and implement budgets, prepare reports for senior management and ensure the department complies with company policies. Managers also ensure workers have the resources to complete their work.
The size of the company can determine the type of activities the manager performs. For example, in a larger organization, a production manager might direct team or group leaders, who then oversee the scheduling and output of workers. In a smaller company, the production manager might perform these activities herself. Managers assess the performance of the department or company against the business’s goals and plans. Some business managers perform human resource activities, such as performance evaluations, hiring and discipline for employees in their department. Performance evaluations provide an opportunity to set goals, motivate and develop workers. Managers motivate workers through incentives and positive feedback. When workers fail to meet the company’s performance requirements, managers provide the evaluation that can help employees improve their work.
Most employers require a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in business management to qualify for a position as a business manager.
Business managers must have excellent written and verbal communication skills to direct employees and lead the department.
Managers are also problem solvers, who work to overcome the obstacles that may prevent a department or company from reaching its goals.
Some companies might promote employees with considerable experience from within a department to lead the group. For example, a salesperson with years of experience in the field might advance to a sales manager position.
