Why Every Workplace Values People Management Skills

People skills are essential at work. If youve got them, youll excel in any business, organisation or workplace.

Enjoy business and love working with people? Its not too late to apply for a business management degree at the University of Bolton. Head over to our dedicated Clearing website to find the right undergraduate course for you for September 2021.

We have a number of different courses with places still available, including our BSc Hons Business Management (People Management) programme that equips you with amazing transferable skills for life.

Having people management skills isn’t just useful in commercial settings either. They are highly sought after in every workplace, and here’s why:

Because collaboration is key

There’s a major theme running through every industry right now, and that is collaboration’. Not just a buzzword, collaboration is all about enabling better teamwork within teams and between different departments.

In a world where teams are increasingly distributed and the remote workforce is on the rise, it’s not surprising that three quarters of employers now consider collaboration to be paramount.

The idea is to get all functions of a business to cooperate seamlessly, in a bid to increase efficiency, improve morale and productivity, leverage better communication, and to break down traditional silos where data is not effectively shared or utilised.

Having a combination of business management and people management skills gives you the perfect leadership capabilities in this arena. One of the biggest challenges of managing human resource isn’t just about getting them to fulfil their potential, but to get everyone to work together effectively, and with one shared business goal.

Because it improves productivity

It’s practically a scientific formula; happiness breeds productivity. According to a study, happy workers are 13% more productive in their jobs. This means teams that are happy at work are able to achieve more in the same number of hours compared to those who are stressed, anxious or depressed.

Having good people management skills ensures that everyone’s needs are looked after. Managers with excellent soft skills will be able to get more out of their staff, while building a strong rapport with them.

Because good relationships lead to retention

If staff turnover is high, it’s a big indicator that people management skills are lacking within an organisation. Having a good management strategy is essential if employers want to hang on to their staff, and also attract new candidates.

No-one wants to walk into a toxic environment after all! So in order to attract and retain top talent, employers have to invest in a good HR team.

By harnessing combined people management and business management skills, organisations can provide teams with the support and motivation they need to perform, develop and face new challenges.

This is why people skills are relevant across all sectors, and why more and more employers are taking a people-centric approach and focusing on ways to nurture individuals in their personal and professional development.

Because people are the most important asset

Investment in people is crucial for every type of workplace, from offices and shop floors to factories and warehouses. No matter what line of work you plan to enter, a degree in business management and people management can come in useful.

Does this degree sound interesting to you? There are still spaces available at the University of Bolton, and you can apply through Clearing for September 2021.
