Middle Management Is Silently Cracking

Cost to Company

29-08-2022 • 20 mins

“As middle management, we know for a fact that there's really nothing much in our control.” - Ishaan*, former manager at a prominent e-learning startup.

In the 4th episode of Cost to Company, we’ll speak to four middle managers who’ll tell us, no holds barred, about what it feels like to be stretched from both ends in an organisation, during an unforgiving year that has inflicted mass layoffs due to the slowdown.

They’ll talk to us about their struggles, their strife, their confusion. And hopefully, some solutions too.

How did we get here? Why is the role of a middle manager particularly difficult during a downturn? Do we even need them in the first place?

Listen to the episode as we try to navigate these difficult questions with interesting answers.
