Managing team working means that a set of employees will be monitored to make sure that all employees are working equally and no-one is being lazy or working to hard. Incentives such as bonuses or prizes will help employees reach their targets. Liaison with other departments Large organisations will have hundreds or different teams working together across the business. However if they don't work with other departments effectively and coordinate as a whole then it will result in an unsatisfactory performance. Businesses will have different functions such as finance, marketing or HRM and each will need to work with all other departments to ensure a smooth running of the business. These functional areas don't necessarily have to meet physically; these processes can be done via virtual cross-functional teams where they meet over the internet using web conferencing. This process is already being used with British Airways. Provision of appropriate incentives To manage human resources effectively, managers may decide to use incentives to encourage employees to work hard and produce good quality results. There are many different incentives which can be used and each incentive will benefit other employees. If the incentives don't appeal to the employees then they won't be bothered about getting them so won't work hard to get them.
