Supervising for Success
Success at 4M Building Solutions cannot be attributed to just one person. It comes from the united efforts of everyone in our entire organization, but it all starts with our Team Members. We rely on their outstanding work day in and day out, which is why we are committed to providing them with all of the resources they need to do a great job.
That is why it is so important that our supervisors' main focus is providing help and guidance for our Team Members so they can do such great work. In providing leadership to the team, we must distinguish between supervisors and management. Managers give administrative support for the entire organization, while supervisors are leaders on the ground level, supplying first-line support and leadership directly to Team Members. That includes providing instruction, answering questions, solving problems and possessing in-depth knowledge of both management and the operations performed by Team Members.
Because each of our clients have their own unique needs and challenges, there is no one correct ratio of Team Members to supervisors. We take great care in putting together the right-sized team for both our client’s needs and to work optimally and efficiently alongside the team’s supervisor.
Additionally, 4M’s dedication to hiring the best and ensuring that they stay with 4M for the long-term means that there is less of a burden on supervisors to guide and monitor each employee. We empower each Team Member and give them a certain amount of autonomy because we know they strive for excellence in everything they do. It is why they are part of the 4M team. We trust our Team Members because they have proven that they deserve it.
At 4M, we do great work because everyone here is eager to do their very best no matter what. We appreciate the role that our supervisors play because, without them, we would be without one of the most important parts of our team. Thank you to each and every one of our leaders for the excellent work that you do!
