Tough guy Culture



Tough guy culture is basically another way of saying micro-management. Employees are monitored every step of the way and when something does not meet the standards or expectations of the company the employee is given guidance and monitored further. It can be a tough (hence the name) environment for some to work in especially if you are independent and have a creative mind. An example of this would be in a customer service role. Most companies have scripts that customer service representatives must follow when answering calls in a call center. If you stray from the script at all, even just a word, it can mean the difference between being in good standing with management – or bad. Calls are often recorded for quality assurance and the employees will be reviewed consistently to ensure that they are following the protocol. Sometimes these cultures follow the three-strikes-you’re-out practice in which you can be terminated if you do not act on any corrections provided to you during your review. It’s hard to be watched all the time but these type of companies just want to ensure consistency and commitment to their customers and they need employees that can be shaped to do just that. Performance reviews can be tricky, try not to intimidate your employees, instead find tactful ways to say what you need to say in Performance Evaluation Comments.
