Support from Management
Supervisor did not have a grasp of accounting and finance disciplines to direct staff.
Skill sets of individual employees were not acknowledged to promote a affirming workplace or work unit. Instead, subjective decisions were made, alienating the most skilled of my coworkers, who eventually sought employment in the private sector.
There were no succession plans in place to adequately train new employees with the knowledge base of three 25+ year retirees.
Suggestions for improvement
- Implementing supervisor training and objective assessments as to their ability to manage conflict and foster an affirming team. Require at least a basic knowledge of the finance and accounting skill sets required of supervised staff.
