They might be great at their jobs, but I can’t do my own job if they don’t finish these tasks, and I have no authority over them. Help!

  1. Do YOUR job, #1. Then make sure that “administrative duties” are included in each manager’s/supervisor’s job description. Since that can be like pulling teeth, stick with it. I also come from the school that says performance reviews should be weighted with standards and objectives. The weighting was usually 40% standards and 60% objectives for department managers. Then keep score. Who was late with performance reviews? Who is too lenient, and rates everyone a superstar? Make sure they are aware of compensation policies. The first time a manager gets dinged on his or her performance review for ignoring HR tasks they’ll get the message.
