Micro-managing is a vital part of an employer’s job. An employee’s work environment is not a popularity contest. It’s about successfully fulfilling the ongoing tasks at hand in the way in which you as the employer sees fit.
Some people work better if they are micro-managed and are held accountable all day long. Other’s do not need as much hand holding but nonetheless, micro-managing assures you that a job is getting done the way that you want it done.
