Communication with the team is critical. The associate is probably swamped and doesn't know what to do with all the work (your work and other engagements work). If you gave an associate a task, let them work remotely, and didn't check in on them, how do you think that would turn out? Same concept. It's a learning point. I had the same issue a couple times, changed my managing style, and havent had any problems since

Don't do it yourself, GDM is still going to charge the hours they worked and you will either charge the hours you spend doing it or eat them which is a lose-lose for everyone. Reach out & figure out how to get it done with them ASAP.

Pwc2 -Amen! Give them a call and talk to them just like you would to an associate. Teams tend to not call them and check up with them. But that's the key to GDM. They are humans too and they like when you thank them for the work they have given. Also FYI- you can request the same GDM team if you would like to multiple times. I have done it and it's awesome to work with the same team.

You should follow up with them. if there is no issue and they still can finish the work, tell your manager how sucks they are and you will likely do it yourself. I am not a big fan of the outsourcing team either, but have to accept the truth for the sake of partners' pockets

A question for recruiters. When you call someone asking them if they are interested in an opportunity and then ask them for a technical interview the next day and they ask for an extension does it impact their application?
Recently it has happened to me twice that recruiter calls, he has my details and asks if I’m interested and then ask for same day or next day interview. And when I apologize since I actually have job to take care as well they just ghost me. Is this something that’s normal?

Hi colleagues!

I'm an experienced HRBP who's looking for some career advancement advice. I'm currently studying for my SPHR and looking to take the leap to HR Director roles. While I'm a strong HRBP, I've yet to manage a team. And while I train managers on people leadership skills, I myself, haven't had a chance to flex those muscles. Those in HR leadership, should I apply for HR Director roles even though I haven't managed a team?
