Leaders and the workforce
If anything, the evolution of the workforce has taught us it is that no workforce can be forced to become more efficient from the use of threats by management. The workforce has rights and over the past century they have become more aware of their rights and it is due to this reason that the classical styles of management do not apply to today’s workforce or work environment.
There needs to be a good relationship between the leaders and the workforce in order for efficiency to occur. This is not just the opinion of one scholar. It is the opinion of a majority of modern scholars in the field of management of the workforce.
The workforce needs to feel appreciated by their leaders in order for them to put their best efforts in to the success of a company. If there is no trust then there will be no way the workforce would try to improve its performance in the long run.
