No it's just a descriptor. Hate calling them my staff...sounds condescending. They report directly to me...I describe them as such. Sounds a bit..."manager-esque", but it is what it is.

 

 

I call my reports our team 😀

I think my direct reports are sleeping in as an April fools joke...

 

 

That's interesting terminology, do you use manager tools?

 

 

It's pretty standard corporate terminology. Separates who you directly manage from those you are responsible for (ie report to someone who reports to you etc)

Yeah, I am familiar with it, though it's more common outside of NZ. I recently heard it used at a presentation on staff management during a conference in the US on Manager Tools.

It's been used in every single NZ-based/NZ originating corporate that I've ever worked in.
