The Unfortunate Casualty of Busyness: Unhealthy Manager and Employee Relations

In a post from June 4, 2018, Harvard Business Review proposes that many managers are, simply put, too busy to be fair to employees.

“..all too often, employees find themselves being treated unfairly – their boss makes decisions concerning them without consultation or due process, or their boss is inconsistent in applying rules. They may think that their boss is incompetent or biased, or even worse, just plain mean. Although this may be true of a few bosses, most recognize the importance of fairness and want to act fairly

-Harvard Business Review

Acting fairly to maintain healthy manager and employee relations is not always easy. Over 60 years of research finds that fairness is not one simple, singular choice but a complex and integrated set of decisions and actions

Harvard Business Review says managers have to attend to four aspects of fairness.

  • Distributive fairness
  • Transparent and clear procedures
  • Informational fairness
  • Interpersonal fairness

To read HBR’s full article with 3 studies and explanation of these 4 aspects in more detail visit the original blog post located here.
