Introduction

Introduction In this task I will be explaining the role of a manger of Cadburys and also how the role of management can improve the performance of the business.

Conclusion

How the role of management can improve the performance of Cadburys? The role of the management is important as they need to have a good relationship with the employees. If this is happening then the employees will work harder for the employers and this will benefit Cadburys as the job will be completed more quickly and more production will be produced as quality too. When the employer has got a good relationship with the employees then the company is also benefited. When the employer has got good relationship and an employee has phoned in sick and when a good relationship is present then the employees may stay on and cover the shifts, or if Cadburys is short on staff then other employees will cover as they will enjoy working as the relationship is good. The workplace needs to be health and safety free so the role of managers can effectively and considerably walk around and so can the employees work better without the dangers of getting hurt and work more comfortably. With good relationship with employers and employees the performance of Cadburys will be improved as the employees will work harder and more products will be produced and the job will be completed more quickly. ?? ?? ?? ??
