Role of team leaders
and supervisors in
Employee retention includes various steps taken
to satisfy the employees so that they stay with the
organisation for a longer duration. Strong measures
must be taken to retain the high potential employees
who have spent a good amount of time in the
organisation and know it in and out. It is essential
to retain the talented employees who are loyal
towards the organisation and can contribute effec-
The team leaders and the supervisors play an
important role in employee retention:
An employee quits his job whenever he faces
problems at the workplace and is not satisfied with
his work. The job must be challenging enough and
the employees should learn something new every
day for them to stick to it for a long time. It is the
responsibility of the team leader to ensure that the
team members are contented with their work and
share a good rapport amongst themselves.
The team members must be assigned respon-
sibilities as per their specialisation, qualification,
interests as well as experience. The team members
must find their job interesting for them to enjoy
and work hard to achieve the organisation goals.
The KRAs must be formulated in the presence of
the employees. Let them decide what best they
can perform. Problems crop up whenever there is
a mismatch or the employees have to do something
out of compulsion. Don t compel anyone to do
something. Let them accept the responsibilities
willingly. An individual with an analytical bent of
mind would not do very well in a marketing or
branding profile. A wrong profile is one of the
several reasons as to why an employee looks for
An over burdened worker never finds his job
interesting and would always be eager for a change.
It is the duty of the team leader to distribute the
work equally among all the employees. The manager
should not be partial to anyone and treat all his
members as one. He should not let negativity creep
in the team. The superiors must have a control on
their subordinates and make sure they do not fight
with each other. Nothing productive comes out of
disputes, rather it demotivates the individuals and
prompt them to look for some another opportu-
Rules and regulations should be same for every-
one. Avoid granting special favours to anyone.
One should never fear his boss. Hitler approach
does not work in the current scenario.
A team leader should be a role model for his
team. The team managers should not be arrogant
and avoid misuse of their position. He should let
all the team members participate in the decision
making process. Every employee should have the
freedom of expression and no one should be left
out or neglected. The team leader should trust and
respect his team members to expect the same from
