Supervision is a widely misunderstood term. Many people believe it applies
only to people who oversee the productivity and development of entry-level workers.
That’s not true.
The term “supervisor” typically refers to one’s immediate
superior in the workplace, that is, the person whom you report directly to in
the organization. For example, a middle manager’s supervisor typically
would be a top manager. A first-line manager’s supervisor would be a middle
manager. A worker’s supervisor typically would be a first-line manager.
Supervisors typically are responsible for their direct reports’ progress
and productivity in the organization. Supervision often includes conducting
basic management skills (decision making, problem solving, planning, delegation
and meeting management), organizing teams, noticing the need for and designing
new job roles in the group, hiring new employees, training new employees, employee
performance management (setting goals, observing and giving feedback, addressing
performance issues, firing employees, etc.) and ensuring conformance to personnel
policies and other internal regulations. Supervisors typically have strong working
knowledge of the activities in their group, e.g., how to develop their product,
carry out their service, etc.

NOTE: Many people also use the term “supervisor”
to designate the managerial position that is responsible for a major function
in the organization, for example, Supervisor of Customer Service. This topic
in the Library does not address that context of supervision, but rather addresses
the context described in the above paragraphs.
