[EN] My supervisor can be highly intimidating. I understand it is done with a desire to deliver quality work, but at times people are humiliated and it is affecting the morale of the whole team. Is there anything I can do about it?


Your supervisor is expected to challenge and drive the team to deliver the quality of work expected at CERN. This may lead to criticism or comments on team members’ performance. However, a manager is also expected to treat team members with respect and act with due sensitivity. A good working environment can only occur with the support and involvement of us all – supervisors and supervisees alike.
If you feel that you are not being treated in a professional manner, you should try to speak to your supervisor or their supervisor. You can also consult the Human Resources Department or the Ombuds Office.
