Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

A front-line manager who is responsible for the supervision of employees. Supervisors are often described as ‘people in the middle’ because they implement but do not shape management policy, and because they work alongside non-management employees but are distant from them by virtue of their responsibility for labour control. [See chargehand, first-line manager, foreman, and team leader.]
