Supervisors are usually in contact with multiple elements of a business – the workforce, customer base, and upper management. Therefore, they need to be able to manage supervisory, social, and accountability skills.
Supervisors and managers are responsible for making sure that tasks are performed correctly and at the right time, bearing in mind the overall goals of their respective company.
