Selecting and Developing First-line Managers Factsheet

October 6, 2021 Aon's Assessment Solutions

Managers lead by example and are the ambassadors for the organisation’s behaviours, values and culture. For those responsible for identifying and developing first-line managers there are some very real challenges. Firstly, they need to understand the skills and behaviours that new managers specifically must demonstrate, and secondly, they need a way to benchmark these skills across the talent pool. They also need a way to develop specific skills when a skills gap is identified.

The specific skills and behaviours needed have changed. There are new demands of a rapidly changing workplace and a need to engage, build empathy, develop inclusivity and promote wellbeing with an often geographically dispersed team. It means that we need a new model for first-line managers that better reflects today’s challenges.
