Management Behavior During Merger with Envirotech

The purpose of this memo is to discuss the importance of your behavior during the merger with EnviroTech.   It is very important that you understand how your behavior affects the productivity of your employees.

Also, you must be aware of the consequences of not following the law.   The last thing I would like to discuss is how to handle working within a diverse environment.
How a Manager’s Behavior Can Affect the Productivity of His or Her Workers
The behavior of our management staff could have a negative or positive effect on the productivity of our employees, depending on how we conduct ourselves.   According to Cascio “line managers have authority (the organizationally granted right to influence the actions and behavior of the workers they manage), they have considerable impact on the ways workers actually behave.” (Cascio, 2006, p7).   With that being said it is important for us, as managers, to embrace this change.   Our employees will look to us for guidance on how they should react to this merger; therefore we must lead by example.   If we display negative attitudes about the merger our employees will have negative attitudes however, if we have positives ones our employees will be positive. Such attitudes can and will affect the performance of our employees.   If people feel like this merger will lead to them being unemployed or unfairly treated they will not continue to work to the best of their abilities.   We want our employees to feel at ease and secure in their jobs so that they will continue to be productive and make this transition as smooth as possible.
